Empowering the underprivileged by giving them access to better healthcare facilities

Caring for its sick and disadvantaged is the hallmark of an empathetic society. ICICI attempts to go down to the grass-root levels to contribute to the better health of the disadvantaged sections of society.

ICICI Foundation has partnered with the government and various NGOs to make healthcare accessible to those who need it the most. Multiple projects have been planned and executed to bring significant improvement in the health of the underprivileged, especially women and children.

Nurturing future generations by helping reduce malnutrition among children
Malnutrition among children under the age of five is a major public health problem in India. India has one the highest number of under-weight children in the world. To help address this grave issue, ICICI Foundation partnered with the Government of Rajasthan to improve the nutritional status of children aged between 0-5 years by adopting a three-pronged approach. The approach encompasses preventing the condition, managing it and treating it.
We focused on improving access to primary health and nutrition by supporting Anganwadi Centres (AWCs) in villages. This project was successful in reducing cases of severely underweight children by 17% and made primary healthcare easily available to women. 32,000 children have been impacted as a result of this initiative.
Lending a helping hand for surgeries of underprivileged children
ICICI Foundation has partnered with Ekam Foundation, an NGO, to sponsor surgeries for underprivileged children in rural Maharashtra, so that they can lead better lives.
We has provided a grant of Rs. 3 million to support subsidised elective surgeries through a network of private and Government hospitals. The surgeries span congenital heart diseases, orthopaedic implants, burn cases and eye problems.
Touching lives by making healthcare accessible to those living below the poverty line
The Outpatient Healthcare Programme was launched as a part of the GOI’s Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) platform in Puri, Odisha and Mehsana, Gujarat. A unique public- private partnership initiative, it aimed at strengthening the delivery of outpatient healthcare at public healthcare facilities. We involved private health service providers to add to our reach and efficiency in providing access to quality healthcare for Below Poverty Line (BPL) households.
The programme at these two locations successfully demonstrated how integration of outpatient healthcare including improved staffing, setting up of diagnostic services and supply of generic medicines with the RSBY platform can improve access to healthcare for BPL households and reduce their out-of-pocket expenses on healthcare.
Reaching out to the truckers to enable a happier and healthier journey
The Apna Clinic Project was launched in 2011 to promote the general health and well-being of long-distance truck drivers in Transport Nagar at Nigdi, Pune. Various clinics were set up where experienced staff counseled truck drivers on issues of health, hygiene and road safety.
This project adopted a holistic approach to improve the health of the truckers by conducting yoga and other wellness activities in addition to providing clinical services. In association with the Regional Transport Office (RTO), Apna Clinic has conducted various Road Safety Awareness Camps and facilitated communication between truckers and RTO officials.
We have reached out to over 37,000 truckers through this highly successful initiative.
