Marginalized children face a higher risk of contacting various infectious diseases, intestinal worm infections, stunting, skin infections, bleeding gums, vision problems, etc., owing to abject poverty, poor sanitation, malnutrition and illiteracy of parents. As a consequence, poor children have been suffering from various ailments for lack of access to quality health care services.
Against this background, the government of Telangana has forged a partnership with the SIF to provide comprehensive quality healthcare services 24/7 to poor children studying in Social (TSWREIS), Tribal (TTWREIS), Minority (TMREIS) and BC Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Societies with a coverage of more than 300,000 children. The SIF established Panacea Health Command Centre 24X7 to provide quality health care services to poor children round the clock with a dedicated team of doctors and field staff. The Panacea has been saving the lives of thousands of children with absolutely no economic burden on their poor parents.
