Activity Report in India (FY2011-2016)

The state of Madhya Pradesh has one of the poorest medical care facilities in India, with high infant mortality rates and inadequate maternal healthcare. For this reason, the Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh was chosen for these activities. We believe that helping to achieve the three health-related MDGs is the most suitable aspiration for us.


Ranbaxy(current Sun Pharma) manufactures pharmaceuticals in the district and the local residents have expressed a strong desire for more mobile clinic services. This led to the start of the new project. Three entities cooperate, with Daiichi Sankyo taking the overall lead, Ranbaxy(current Sun Pharma) coordinating with the government and hospitals and providing support, and RCHS executing and managing activities. Two new mobile healthcare vans are set to be added to the Dewas district to further reinforce and strengthen the medical services being provided in this area. In May 2011, several project participants visited this district located in the central region of India. The staff met with district administrators, the public hospital's chief medical officer, head of a village and accredited social health activists (ASHAs) who support the health of local residents in a variety of ways. The participants gave their views on various local issues-including the difficulty of finding doctors to work in such a remote place, water problems and the lack of hospitals and other facilities. They also spoke of their high expectations for the project and assured their cooperation in every respect.
