Improving the Health and Well-being: KMCT’s Mission
India, a developing country with over 1.3 billion population, has been working on improving
the health status of its citizens for a long time. Despite progress in the health sector, India
still faces significant challenges in providing access to basic healthcare services, especially for
underprivileged populations. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the major challenges
faced by underprivileged people in India and explore some initiatives that have been taken
by Kishorechand Musale Charitable Trust to improve their health status.
- Improving the Health and Well-being: KMCT’s Mission
India has a high burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases, and
underprivileged people are the most vulnerable. Here are some of the challenges faced by
1. Lack of access to healthcare services: A significant number of underprivileged people
live in remote areas where healthcare services are either non-existent or difficult to
access. Lack of transport, poor infrastructure, and long waiting times are some of the
major reasons for this.
2. Poor nutrition: Underprivileged people often do not have access to nutritious food
due to poverty and low income. This results in malnutrition and a weak immune
system, making them more vulnerable to diseases.
3. Limited knowledge about health: Underprivileged people often have limited
knowledge about health and hygiene. They are unaware of basic health practices
such as handwashing and sanitation, which can prevent the spread of diseases.
4. Limited financial resources: Underprivileged people often have limited financial
resources, making it difficult for them to afford healthcare services, including
medication and treatment.
With pure intentions of simply providing equal opportunities to quality health care for the
underprivileged irrespective of community gender, caste, class, age & geographical location
to improve their overall physical and mental well-being. KMCT has 8000+ Adolescent girls
who have received Family Life Education since 2015.
Along with this, 3,000 + Women and Children benefited from Eradication of Malnutrition
Program, 10,000+ Rural and Tribal population benefited from health Camps annually, 600+
Pints of blood donated to KEM Hospital via annual blood donation camp, 50+ Rural
Anganwadi supported by KMCT throughout palghar district, 7+ Major hospital tie ups for
treatment of Rural underprivileged population
improving the health status of underprivileged people in India is a complex issue that
requires a multi-faceted approach. While the government has launched several initiatives to
improve healthcare services, more needs to be done to reach vulnerable populations in
remote areas. KMCT has tried and will continue to play its role in providing access to
healthcare services. However, improving the health status of underprivileged people in India
is not just about providing healthcare services. It is also about addressing issues such as
poverty, malnutrition, and lack of education. By working together, we can improve the
health status of underprivileged people in India and create a more just and equitable society.
We urge you to be a patron of our cause and support the ones deprived of basic healthcare!
