CHAI’s Vision is to uphold its commitment to bring ‘health for all’. It views health as a state of complete physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being, and not merely the absence of sickness. Accordingly, CHAI envisions as India wherein people respect human life, and hold and nurture it to grow into its fullness.

CHAI’s Mission is to promote community health understood as a process of enabling the people, especially the poor and the marginalized, to be collectively responsible to attain and maintain their health as a right, and ensure availability of quality healthcare at reasonable cost.

CHAI has 3522 health care member institutions across the country. CHAI extends its medical care to over 21 million persons in a year: 1000 Sister-Doctors; 25,000 Sister-Nurses; 10,000 plus Sister- Paraprofessionals and over 5000 Sister- Social Workers.

CHAI’s vast network of member institutions includes big and small hospitals as well as health and service centres. In collaboration with governments and other NGOs, CHAI works in the areas of mother and child health, communicable and non-communicable diseases, disability rehabilitation, disaster relief, tele-medicine and so much more.
