Improvement pertaining to Healthcare has been witnessed unevenly across the nation, especially the North East, with wide urban-rural variations and limited access to the medical services. The region faces a number of challenges, the most crucial being lack of doctors and specialists leading to low doctor-population ratio in the region. APPL Foundation, along with its partner organisations, tries to bridge the gap between the rural healthcare requirement and its availability.
APPL Foundation’s objective is to provide access to quality healthcare to the rural areas in North East India. We start by equipping the Referral Hospital and Research Centre (RHRC) at Chubwa with state of the art healthcare facilities. We then connect make these facilities accessible to the remote regions with the use of cutting-edge technology, via e-Health Centres set up in collaboration with Hewlett Packard. We create awareness and provide basic medical care to the population through medical camps and weekly outreach programmes.
