Combat COVID-19

(World Health Organization) WHO says 58.17 Lakh of people died in 2016 because of Lifestyle diseases also called as Non communicable disease like Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Hypertension which alone accounted for 55% of premature mortality in India in the age group of 30-70.

While India lives in its villages the statistics of access to quality healthcare particularly in the low income groups are worrisome, where most are caught unaware which further increases the post-diagnostic treatment costs. In fact, a large segment of the population is deprived of even primary healthcare facilities. India needs newer and innovative ways like Mobile labs/LaBikes to provide care and compensate for the deficiencies of the healthcare workforce and infrastructure. Swasthgram is relentlessly working to answer this imperative need.

Everyone knows preventive healthcare is crucial but still our current running system is not able to tackle it.  To begin our journey team has done analysis and found the key reasons/challenges –  PAAA

Tripple  A’s stands for

  • Lack of Awareness
  • Lack of accessibility to service
  • Lack of Affordability

P stands for the biggest reason Psychological   – I am too busy

To address this dire need Swasthmanthan program took its shape in January 2011 to provide healthcare screening services throughout India and developed the Basic Blood Diagnostics tests initiative. Over the past few years, we have helped, especially among marginalized communities in remote, rural areas and slums.

SwasthManthan

With working of all three important engines of disruptive technology, skilled manpower and strong network , Swasthgram is confident on their positive outcome that can realize their vision to come true of delivering “ Quality Diagnostic/Preventive care to 78% (95 Crore) people of India right at their doorstep”. Swasthgram envisioned reaching every corner of India with Preventive Health Care Screening to “Make healthy India”.

LABIKE LAUNCH

In the year 2015, Swasthgram launched its program Swasthmanthan as “SwasthManthan Diwas” on 6th May 2015 at Constitution Club ,Delhi with the adoption of advanced technology – LaBike which has the potential of addressing all ground level issues of health care delivery system.

LaBike technology has all the required certifications & approvals by the medical fraternity. Moreover, It has been approved by Ministry of Health & Family Welfare for the utilization in the Sub centers, PHC’s & CHC’s of India.

Complete laboratory retrofits on client’s bike with complete framework to keep equipments with bio waste management facility with power back -up and GPS Tracker.

Swasthgram with its pioneering innovation- LaBike, is a lab on wheels that while ensuring access to quality diagnostics & screening is also bolstering India’s preventive healthcare scenario. Behavioural factors such as change in lifestyle have resulted in newer types of diseases which require access to specialists who are few in number and cannot be reached through traditional means of healthcare delivery, LaBike has substantially leveraged mobile labs as an alternate healthcare delivery channel.

Motorcycle fitted mobile version [LaBike] is highly  useful for villages and inaccessible locations etc. It addresses preventive/ curative health care at the doorstep of the people. With use of such technology in our program, we ensure affordability, accessibility ,accuracy & awareness to those who are in dire need of care.

 

It does 76 blood tests & has all essential laboratory equipments to perform operations in the field. It has Ultra Portable foldable tent house to cover entire Laboratory work with Cold storage unit & facility for bio-waste management.

USE OF IT TECHNOLOGY – TO ASSURE QUALITY AND DATA

Software Applications such as Patient Data Management System (PDMS), Healthcare Intelligence Applications, Satellite Control & Cloud Computing have been designed to ensure highest quality standards & transparency of the work in the field. Based on these technologies, we acclaim monitoring & evaluation of each & every project running in nook & corners of our country

Economy Loss Going up Every Year

Cost of Kidney replacement  ~15 lacs

Cost of liver transplant  ~ 20 lacs

Cost of Heart Surgery  ~ 8 lacs

  • The leading causes of deaths in India among NCDs are cardiovascular disease (29.89 lakh), diabetes (1.75 lakh), cancer (5 lakh) and respiratory diseases (6.74 lakh).
  • An estimated 1.4 million to 2 million people experienced `catastrophic’ spending in 2004 with 6-8 lakh Indians ending up being impoverished by the cost of caring for cardiovascular disease and cancer alone.

Most of damage in Health happen due to late diagnosis

True Solution is –   “Preventive Care Screening”

The operations of our mission completely aligns with the National Health Policy Framework 2015 (para 4.3.1.2 , 3.3.6 ) of our government having major focus on NCD’s , prevention of diseases with effective & rationale  delivery system via usage of most appropriate  health technology , communication and care provisions to reduce the burden of diseases at national level as 39.1 % constitute the bulk of the country’s disease burden as NCD only. To curb this we need to have health & wellness centres with holistic effect in place of primary health centres.

Recent Initiative Under Swasthmanthan

Under the swasthmanthan program, we recently initiated a project on Cancer Test Screening & Awareness Sessions on Cancer causes , its prevention, its treatment  & increasing sensitivity among people on this disease which is no more a rare disease.

The program was launched officially on 15th July 2018 by Chief Guest of Honor Shri Ved Pal Lohia , Nigam Parshad from South Delhi through the means of camp where around 50 people from the community were benefitted for Prostate Cancer, Oral Cancer, Cervical Cancer & Breast Cancer.

Cancer Statistics in India 

  • One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India 
  • For every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, one woman dies of it in India 
  •  
  • As many as 2,500 persons die every day due to tobacco-related diseases in India 
  • Smoking accounts for 1 in 5 deaths among men and 1 in 20 deaths among women, accounting for an estimated 9,30,000 deaths in 2010 
  •  
  • Estimated number of people living with the disease: around 2.5 million
  • Every year, new cancer patients registered: Over 7 lakh
  • Cancer-related deaths: 5,56,400

Deaths in the age group between 30-69 years 

  • Total: 3,95,400 (71% of all cancer related deaths)
  • Men: 2,00,100
  • Women: 1,95,300

Cancers of oral cavity and lungs in males and cervix and breast in females account for over 50% of all cancer deaths in India [9].

The top five cancers in men and women account for 47.2% of all cancers; these cancers can be prevented, screened for and/or detected early and treated at an early stage [10]. This could significantly reduce the death rate from these cancers.
