Lupin inks MoU with Govt of Rajasthan to strengthen Healthcare


Lupin and Government of Rajasthan sign MoU

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed today by “Lupin” and the Rajasthani government to address the high rates of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. The Lupin Human Welfare and Research Foundation made this announcement.

The MoU was signed in the presence of Tushara Shankar, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Lupin, and Dr. K. L. Meena, Director Public Health, Department of Medical, Health and Family Welfare, Government of Rajasthan.

In accordance with the agreement, LHWRF will collaborate with the State’s Department of Health and Family Welfare to improve results by bolstering the healthcare system and addressing the prevalence of CVD and COPD. The partnership will aim to provide preventative, curative, and support-based solutions for the local communities in Alwar with the goal of curing the diseases in the short term and reducing their prevalence in the long run. The software is supposed to be implemented in stages.


Non-communicable illnesses account for over 5.87 million fatalities in India, or 60% of all deaths (NCDs). Rajasthan has greater rates of COPD and CVD prevalence than the rest of the nation despite the fact that they are two of the leading causes of death. Rajasthan is one of the states that is most affected by respiratory illnesses. These numbers prompted LHWRF to conduct an extensive scenario analysis of a few regional healthcare facilities that had received Department of Medical Health Services authorization (DMHS). The results of the examination were delivered to the DMHS for consideration on September 21, 2022. The department’s suggestions and input were incorporated into the final project proposal.

The analysis’s conclusions have assisted in the development of a programme that will comprehensively address CVD and COPD in the area. Six critical areas, including community education, capacity building, early screening, diagnosis, and treatment, the establishment of NCD corners in health centres, and a patient health tracking system, have been identified using an evidence-based approach to design support interventions.

The MoU is a project of the LHWRF “Lives” program, which seeks to enhance community health and quality of life.

“We are observing an increase in CVD and COPD cases in Rajasthan. With the Lupin Foundation, we entered into an MoU to manage these and other NCD diseases. According to Dr. K. L. Meena, Director Public Health, Department of Medical, Health and Family Welfare Government of Rajasthan, they will work in selected blocks from the Alwar district to close awareness and health service gaps by setting up NCD corners and offering services via their mobile diagnostic van.

“Alwar continues to have a high prevalence of CVD and COPD despite campaigns to increase awareness of these NCDs. Our collaboration with the State Government will enable us to improve health outcomes and minimise the impact of these two devastating diseases. Tushara Shankar, Head of Corporate, claims.
