- 2.4 million Indians die of treatable conditions every year (The Lancet, “Mortality due to low-quality health systems in the universal health coverage era: a systematic analysis of amenable deaths in 137 countries”)
- 1.6 million Indians died due to poor quality of healthcare in 2016, which is twice as many due to non-utilisation of healthcare services (IndiaSpend, “More Indians Die Of Poor Quality Care Than Due To Lack Of Access To Healthcare: 1.6 Million”)
- Only 3% of the major illnesses in metro areas remain untreated, whereas 12% of the same remain untreated in the less developed villages (NCBI, “Issues of Unequal Access to Public Health in India”)
- The percentage of children weighing less than 2.5 kg at birth is observed to have increased in several districts across states between 2010-11 and 2012-13. (Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, “Annual Health Survey”)
Responsenet has a two-fold approach to tackle these problems. We bring affordable quality healthcare services within easy access of the underprivileged families and communities. Secondly, since India’s poorest lack the education to be aware of diseases, we promote healthcare awareness and encourage them to seek help without having them to risk their day’s wages.
Responsenet has a reach of millions of children and families across urban and rural India. We have multiple projects on social causes like healthcare, covering adolescent health, emergency preparedness and response, environmental health, reproductive health, immunization, maternal and child health, and rural health, to name a few.
