Good Health Care for the masses, is among the most overlooked problems in India, where primary healthcare infrastructure is not robust like other developed countries. India has a vast health care system, but there remain many differences in quality between rural and urban areas as well as between public and private health care.
Diagnostic services play a vital role in spotting the health problems and informing medical interventions that make the integrity of the test a crucial aspect as the doctor takes the decision based on the reports. Right from the time the Diagnostic test is collected, the pre-test, and till the report reaches, the whole integrity of the system must not be breached as it could result in the whole detection and treatment process getting complicated.
Access to health care facilities is significantly urban biased. So, people living in the rural areas face the additional handicap of such a situation and they form a disproportionately larger share of the unhealthy population. With proper treatment, millions can enter the mainstream of life resulting in adding many more millions to the labor market, as even care givers now can concentrate their full energies in economic activity. By curing and preventing diseases, India can dramatically improve its productivity and reduce the overall burden of healthcare on families as well as economy at large.

Demography of Bharuch -Midway to Vadodara and Surat cities, on western side up to Dahej & Hansot Areas & on eastern side whole tribal belt including adjoining areas of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. People in this catchment have large section of tribal, illiterate, rural and deprived population.

By developing the CT Scan unit of Shroff Punamchand Devchand Rotary Diagnostic Centre under this project, Rotary will be able to far-spread the benefit to economically challenged community and provide them with latest Medical care at subsidized rates.
