Standardized proactive care delivery positioning us as
the first-point-of-reference for Rural populations


Rural Primary Healthcare

Rural primary care facilities, which are meant to serve as the point of first contact for curative & preventative care delivery and as gatekeepers to next level care providers, face a near chronic shortage in professional health workers.
Coupled with sub-optimal infrastructure and management of resources, the rural Indian population is subject to health and economic inequity.
Unavailable early detection & preventative services, an increasing chronic disease burden and mounting out-of-pocket (OOP) health expenditure are the milestones that line the future of the disadvantaged and underserved population in India.

SughaVazhvu Healthcare aims to re-organize the front line primary care delivery for the inaccessible rural Indian population by implementing a blueprint of innovative solutions and strategies within their rural primary healthcare network.

Patient Testimonials

I belong to a small farming family from Karambayam. I went to Patukottai about 10kms away from my village to get my medications, but could not continue it properly. When SughaVazhvu opened nearby I was able to avail check up. I became aware of my critical condition and with regular follow up I am now much better!


Since last year, I could not read about politics in the papers. Patukottai was too far away to check my eyes. Once SughaVazhvu opened nearby the nurse did my eye check-up and I got my spectacles. Now I can read well, thanks to SughaVazhvu!
