Project Description

‘Children are the future of our nation and this future must be well preserved’. Echoing this philosophy, in January 2016, Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited and Torrent Power Limited jointly initiated a Child Centric Health Care Program - REACH – Reach Each Child under the aegis of Tornascent Care Institute (Section 8 Company of Torrent Group). The program encompasses three major pillars: (a) SHAISHAV for Grass root intervention; (b) JATAN for Greenfield action; and (c) MUSKAN for other allied initiatives. This Paediatric Health Care program has progressed significantly in the current year at all the four centres viz. Sugen (near Surat), Dahej, Indrad and Nadiad / Balasinor and across all the three pillars, with increase in the reach and scope. Under the first pillar of the program SHAISHAV, so far 266 paediatric camps covering 341 villages and 51,000+ underserved children (in the age group of 6 months to 6 years) were conducted; to obtain their base line health status, identify and treat anaemia and malnutrition on and provide specialised treatment to those identified with cardiac, neurological, respiratory and the like disorders. Periodic assessments and follow up actions for all such cases are being undertaken under the supervision of qualified Paediatricians. As a result of thorough follow up activities, more than 83% of children are cured of their anaemic condition and around 73% of children pulled out of severe malnourishment. Of all the children provided specialised treatment for specific ailments mentioned above, 670 cases have been successfully treated. SHAISHAV expanded the coverage of children to include those beyond the age group of 6 years through mobile OPDs. Till March, 2018, 39,000+ children were provided free of cost treatment including the operative and consultation costs at referral hospitals under this expanded coverage. JATAN, the second pillar of the program, focuses on providing the care needed to alleviate the problem identified in SHAISHAV through Paediatric centres. 4 Paediatric centres at Suen, Dahej, Balasinor and Indrad are operational and are additionally supporting the basic medical needs of the villages close to these four areas. Treatment by Paediatricians / doctors, medicines & basic laboratory tests are provided free of cost to children in the age group of 0-18 years. 54,500+ children have benefitted so far till 31st March, 2018.Under MUSKAAN, counselling and support is being provided to the adolescent girls at the Sugen centre for menstrual hygiene and sanitation by giving them free health and hygiene kits which include sanitary pads, soap, shampoo, etc. 4000+ adolescent girls of 70 villages between 11-18 years of age are provided kits on monthly basis. This activity has also been replicated at Pakhajan & Indrad Centres. As an impact of these activities, there has been gradual eradication of physiological and social taboos and increased confidence and self-esteem amongst them.
