Building healthier communities
While medicines are one way we bring good health to people, we have a number of other initiatives that are in line with our belief. Indeed, the delivery of healthcare is largely dependent on developing a robust ecosystem capable of bringing good health to every member of the community. Sadly, there are a number of places – especially in rural India – where infrastructural problems prevent delivery of healthcare. Dr. Reddy’s Foundation runs a number of programs designed to make basic healthcare available in these communities.
Community Health Intervention Program (CHIP)
Community Health Intervention Programme (CHIP) was started with an objective to provide primary healthcare services at the door step to the people living in the rural community, who do not have access to healthcare. The programme focuses on the delivery of primary healthcare, which also includes maternal and neo natal healthcare, and the appropriate dissemination of health related information. CHIP is operational in 155 villages of Andhra Pradesh.
