Approximately 70% of the Indians in rural areas are deprived of basic medical facilities due to lack of healthcare infrastructure within those areas. Thus, accessible healthcare facility becomes a primary requisite for these underprivileged. In case of severe illness, the family gets into a debt spiral, thereby destroying the financial stability of the family and creating a direct impact on other important aspects like nutrition, shelter, education, etc.
SBI Foundation is committed to contributing positively to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Goal 3: ‘Good Health and Well Being’ by bringing positive changes in the lives of underprivileged sections of the society by providing free access to quality healthcare.
SBI Foundation has initiated various healthcare and sanitation projects to contribute towards improving the healthcare scenario amongst this section of the society.
