Mother Care Foundation engagement with the health sector is an extension of its pro-active involvement with issues of public health. The dismal state of public health in the country along with the rapid proliferation of the unregulated private sector has been a continuing concern.
While the expansion of the private sector is primarily responsible for high and increasing inequity in access to health care, its internal functioning is also riddled with problems. The unethical practices in the private sector have raised concerns about the standards of care and its promotion as a better alternative for provision of health care. The private sector is not homogeneous as it involves wide range of service providers.
Even after decades of freedom, India is struggling to provide basic health services to its people. According to government sources, in India 45 children die every hour due to respiratory infections. 1 child dies every 2 minutes due to diarrhoea. And annually, about 2 million children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases.
The situation calls for timely care and diagnosis which can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality especially among children and women.

Customized health camps are organized extensively across the country offering comprehensive health services – curative, preventive, promotive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas.
