Healthcare challenges in rural india

The 3A’s :


76% of India’s rural population lacks access to doctors and specialists.


New medical graduates opt for urban jobs due to financial obligations, leaving rural India with 1 doctor for every 11,000 patients, far below the WHO recommendation of 1 doctor for 1,000 patients.


High costs in private medical institutions limit rural students to just 10% representation in a country where 70% of the population is rural.


Solution: Free Medical Education for Deserving Rural Students

World-class, values-based medical education for rural and underprivileged students who will graduate to serve rural geographies where healthcare accessibility and availability is scarce.
