HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Implementation of SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being
Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all stages and ages
Poor health constitutes suffering and deprivation of the most fundamental kind. Over the years, significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality. Though we have made immense progress globally in finding newer treatments, vaccines, and technologies for healthcare, but universal affordable access to healthcare remains a challenge.
One of the important components of our projects in EduCARE India are the health care and wellbeing of marginalised, poor, adolescents, women, special needs and older people. Like many other developing countries, India too has several need gaps related to health care education and facilities. As India undergoes a transition from tradition medicine to modern medicine, there is an increasing lack of awareness of health issues and lack of access to health care facilities in many rural areas.
Working with the government health department, red cross and other partner organisations, EduCARE India has the following initiatives supporting the SDG 3 Good Health and Wellbeing for All and addressing the related need gaps:
- Institute for Public Health, Medical Outreach and Research
– Centre for Environment, Health and Safety
– Centre for Community Health and Social-care
– Centre for Restorative Health and Rehabilitation
– Centre for Geriatrics and Eldercare
– Centre for Ayurveda, Yoga and naturopathy
- SEHAT SEVA Centres / SEHAT SEVA Abhiyan
- ARSH Programme
