KNOW MOREABOUT US

India ranks 112th in healthcare in the world, with our neighbours- Bangladesh and Sri Lanka doing much better than us! Majority of our population relies on private clinics due to lack of faith in the government facilities. Also, the health insurance coverage being meagre, a departure from health causes a big hole in the pocket for the weaker member of the society.

Our doctor-patient ratio is alarming at 1:2000 while the WHO recommends it to be 1:250. Moreover, most of these doctors prefer to stay in the luxury of urban areas. This further ails rural India which constitutes 70% of our population!

We only spend 4.7% of our GDP on health. The government has come up with brilliant missions like the NRHM, but they are still to penetrate the interiors of our country well.

The situation is grim.

So we decided to take matters into our own hands and do our little part in giving back to the society and thus, Switch India was born with a primary aim of “Switching to rural health”.

A group of enthusiastic young medicos with zeal to take modern medicine to the interiors of the country where ignorance and superstition still engulf the health of people; and take a step forward in transforming & strengthening healthcare system of India came forward.

With some experience on our hands, we soon began to realize that help is not needed only in the rural areas. The urban areas are also plagued with health problems of the slums and lifestyle related diseases. Slowly, with an increase in the number of volunteers, we started broadening our horizons and introduced programs of “Urban Health” and “Healthy living”.

Public work requires money and Switch India believes in contributing to at least a part of its funds on its own. The volunteers contribute a membership fee that is collected in the trust fund.

We are young, we are enthusiastic and we have a will to change the face of healthcare in India. We keep going, we keep growing and we’d love to have you on board!
