News posted by

Genpact has adopted and restored a non-functional government-run primary health centre in Gurgaon, Haryana. As part of this effort, Genpact has provided the healthcare centre with a team of doctors and nurses to help the many underprivileged citizens who otherwise do not have access to primary medical care. The centre is located at C Block, Sushant Lok - 1, Sector 43, Gurgaon.In India, there is a wide disparity between the demand and supply of healthcare services, especially for the huge underprivileged population of the country. Despite the improving economic conditions, the poor and lower middle class in India often cannot afford expensive healthcare costs. According to the National Rural Health Mission, nearly one million Indians die every year due to inadequate healthcare facilities and 700 million people have no access to specialist care. Services at the Genpact-run health centre focus on the preventive aspects of diseases such as basic health check-ups, pathological tests, immunizations, eye examinations and diagnostic tests.Genpact has also made arrangements for free medicine and offers 5-6 beds at the centre to handle emergency situations. The health centre is open from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm from Monday to Saturday and also has an ambulance for emergency transportation to local civil hospitals for all types of surgeries.Speaking on Genpact's healthcare centre, Deepa Kapoor, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Genpact, said, "Access to affordable and quality healthcare is crucial. With this health centre we want to deliver basic health facilities to the local community in Gurgaon. Genpact recognises its responsibility towards local communities."
