Project Description

Asian Paints is creating strategic partnerships with organisations working to improve people’s access to quality healthcare and sanitation facilities.

Project Drishyam: Drishyam is one of their major healthcare and welfare initiatives. It serves the underserved communities across India’s interiors, providing eye check-ups and treatments. During FY 2018-19, the programme reached 1,822 people, under which spectacles were distributed to 887 patients and eye surgeries were organised for ~161 patients at hospitals. The Company also provides healthcare support among rural communities residing near their manufacturing units through specialised medical camps. Patients requiring medical attention after being diagnosed with ailments are referred to local hospitals.

Project Swasth: The programme is specifically designed to provide healthcare facilities to urban slum-dwellers. It provides low-cost yet quality healthcare, including consultation with general physicians, dental care, and pathology tests. Swasth clinics draw an average footfall of 45 patients per day and organises specialised clinics on diabetes and blood pressure screening, among others. The Company offer these facilities through financially sustainable health centres.

Delivering mobile medical care: Asian Paints is providing healthcare facilities through Mobile medical units (MMUs) in numerous villages near their manufacturing locations of Patancheru, Sriperumbudur, Kasna, Rohtak, Khandala and Mysuru. These MMUs are focused on providing medical checkups and conducting free health camps around the communities.

Project Safar: Safar is a special healthcare programme directed towards improving health awareness and medical care facilities among truck drivers. The project uses unique mass communication techniques like nukkad nataks (street plays), games, interpersonal communication sessions and films to spread awareness on various health issues targeting truck drivers like ergonomic illnesses, AIDS, skin diseases and gastritis, among others. During FY 2018-19, Project Safar reached 21,171 new truckers and the Safar Clinics recorded 22,601 footfalls. Overall the programme has covered 40,154 individuals through its behavioural change communication initiatives.

Offering access to better sanitation: During FY2018-19, Asian Paints built a new set of toilets in Garhi Bohar Government School, Rohtak (Haryana), as the previous building lacked a roof and had low walls that jeopardised the safety of girl students. The newly installed toilet complex now has a proper roof and a high boundary wall, along with running water and a proper drainage system. The project has enabled ~200 girls pursue their education without worrying about their safety.

Beat the Plastic: The Company steered an awareness drive regarding the hazards of utilising single-use plastics in Sriperumbudur. The initiative called Beat the Plastic led to collection of 200 kg of plastic, which was then repurposed to make a 2.261 km long rope in the city.

Disaster relief: Helping revive normal life in Kerala: After the devastating Kerala Floods of 2018, Company partnered with HelpAge India to provide resources, manpower, and logistical support for on-ground relief and rehabilitation for the victims of the floods. They collaboratively helped 577 families restart normal life; 1,459 people received treatment through Mobile Medicare Units (MMUs) during the initial 8 days, distributed 577 relief kits to different families and ensured 1,533 patients received medical care in follow-up camps for 45 days.
