Karuna Trust Intervention

Karuna Trust believes affordable, ideally free, universal access to health care is the fundamental right of all Indians; such access is a true testimony to the usefulness of all the economic and technological progress India has made.

Karuna Trust has pioneered and implemented a successful Public-Private-Partnership model that helps leverage the government’s significant investment in public health care infrastructure by complementing it with a socially committed, not-for-profit but professionally competent management team. With a prime objective of ‘Reaching the Unreached’ to provide health care to the underserved and the poor in the remote areas, Karuna Trust continues to serve the community it has been serving with renewed vigor and dedication.
