"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

* Helping to support the salaries of two doctors and a
lab technician in the community health centre located
at village over a period of 2 years.
* Supporting an honorarium for research to find low
cost health care for Leprosy, which is still widely
prevalent in population there.





* The old team of eight doctors at Jan Swasthya Sahyog received a much-needed boost when Dr. Smita Khobragade and Dr. Meenakshi Jambhulkar from the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences at Sewagram, Maharashtra joined them from February 2003. These young doctors will fulfil the requirement of two years of rural service after graduation that their college imposes on them. Their joining has been made possible by AID''s support for their salaries. Dr. Khobragade and Dr. Jambhulkar’s participation in clinical activities has allowed the other doctors to serve more patients than they could do last year. More importantly, it has partially freed some senior members of the team from their clinical responsibilities and allowed them to engage in research and documentation of different aspects of our work in Bilaspur. * On the Leprosy aspect, see article attached in the documents section for progress made.





* Creating a system of primary health care which builds on a continuing and mutually enriching dialogue with the people and derives its strength and long term sustenance from this ·Providing appropriate, rational and low-cost health care services delivered. * Identifying problems during the medical work which demand scientific scrutiny and working on them on a long-term basis * Sharing the medical research findings, including appropriate solutions to common health problems, which can then be applied by other groups
