Special Features of Project

  • When in India, data shows taht 1 child is born in every 100 children with a congenital heart disease, the screening of children for this disease is very important.
  • The lack of pediatric cardiologists in India and lack of hospitals with adequate infrastructure is the reason that out of 200000 children born with CHD, only 15000 get treated per year, rest either donot survive or are added to the pool of waitlisted ones.
  • It becomes our responsibility to screen these underprivileged children whose parents donot have enough financial resources and knowledge
