Health care is one of the important focus areas of CSR interventions. Our projects in this area ranges from full time medical centres to extension programmes like specialised health camps to reach out to the last man in the community.
Community Medical Centre (CMC) & Mobile health Unit (MHU) is a flagship project of Vedanta Limited. Our first CMC was established in the year 2006. It provides the basic medical facilities such as physician consultation and medicines free of cost. The primary objective of CMC is to make basic healthcare facilities accessible to the communities near the company’s operational areas and making the same available to the remotest villages through Mobile Health Units. In the year 20-21, two Community Medical Centres in Goa covering Amona & Navelim villages and One Mobile health unit (MHU) in Jharkhand covering 14 villages were in operation.
In FY-21, with the help of our NGO partner, various health camps for eyes, diabetics and complete blood health, paediatric examination etc were organised.
11132 beneficiaries availed medical services at CMC & MHU in FY 21.
The project has been well recognised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce through Social Impact Award in 2020.
