THE CHALLENGE The health care sector in India is plagued with poor infrastructure, long wait times, high diagnostic costs and extensive travel for treatment. While 78% of the Indian population resides in rural areas, only 2% of medical professionals are available in these areas. In the absence of any organized modern medical facilities, the rural poor fall victim to under qualified doctors in the vicinity of their homes, who extract large sums of money for even basic treatment. The only other alternative available is to travel to private hospitals located in urban areas, an activity which is both tedious and expensive. It is the gap in the availability of low cost primary health care that the innovation is striving to address. THE INNOVATION DONATE ONE RUPEE aims to construct Hospital that provide high quality affordable out patient care in low-income densely populated regions of Uttar Pradesh and across the India, characterized by dearth of adequate quality primary health care. DONATE ONE RUPEE provide an all in price health care service that is cheaper than that ultimately paid at a private clinic or in travelling long distances to access government clinics. DONATE ONE RUPEE has a sound and scalable model with potential for delivering impact to low-income communities. The idea is to develop each rural centre as a self sustaining unit, so it may continue to deliver services without any external support.
The key elements of the Innovation are: Each primary health care clinic is equipped with four departments namely General Medicine, Ophthalmology, Homeopathy and Dentistry including Emergency services. There is one doctor in each department and five support staffs assist them. The patients are doesn't required to pay a any registration fee of which they are offered diagnosis and a weeklong supply of medicines free of cost. The centres identify needy patients and arrange for free cataract surgeries In order to motivate doctors to continue in service they are provided free food and boarding facilities. We are planning to provided Patients with spectacles at a subsidized rate along with required power glasses. Wheel chairs, blankets and crutches have also been distributed.
Vision & Mission
Our mission is to eradicate the lack of health care facilities in rural India by creating a chain of primary health care units that offer high quality, affordable outpatient care in low income, densely populated regions, where health care delivery by the state is sparse.
Our vision is to set up primary health care centres. We intend to scale up and establish centres in the next five years in the most rural areas, and over 100 bed hospital in the next five years, The provision for a hospital equipped to provide basic medical services at the least/Free cost of the poorest is also envisioned.
