Our past CSR initiatives in India
Preventive & curative healthcare
GSK partnered with Niramaya Health Foundation to train community health workers and operate static and mobile clinics in rural and urban slum areas where there was lack of quality health provisions. These health centres and mobile clinics were equipped with qualified doctors and paramedics who delivered quality healthcare services to the underserved. In addition, health workers reached out to the community and raised awareness on communicable diseases, family planning and preventive healthcare measures. Female health workers visited expecting mothers and children below the age of five years to ensure proper nutritional intake, ante and post natal care and complete immunisation coverage.
Care for differently abled & the vulnerable
Health burden is invariably high for the differently abled and the vulnerable. GSK therefore partnered with The AURED Charitable Trust to provide speech and hearing therapy for children with hearing impairment. GSK also supported Paraplegic Foundation to conduct physiotherapy, occupational therapy, counselling, and vocational training for the orthopeadically differently abled. GSK also supported Sanjeevani Social Welfare Society, which runs a special school for the mentally differently abled.
To provide holistic care to vulnerable girls and boys, GSK supported two organisations respectively - Nai Dharti and Pratham.
GSK partnered with Sri Chaitanya Seva Trust to carry out screening and awareness for various forms of cancer in rural Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. GSK also partnered with Indian Cancer Society for providing vocational training to patients affected with cancer or their relative, to reduce the burden of treatment through stipend, accommodation costs reimbursements and nutritional food provision. To provide palliative care to the terminally ill, GSK was supporting Bangalore Hospice Trust.
