INSPIRED LIVING INC supports Navya Tarang Foundation (a registered NGO) and helps raise awareness about a social cause being pursued selflessly by them. This cause is close to our heart and we at Inspired Living believe in the dedication and leadership of Dr. Nidhi Chaudhary in bringing about a positive change for the underprivileged urban poor.
Many women and children from disadvantaged groups in India die each year not due to incurable diseases but due to absence of access to free health services & limited social insurance coverage which leads to a high burden of out-of-pocket expenditure (OOP) in India. Further, a large proportion of urban poor initially access services from unqualified persons/quacks.</p> <p>We find these inequities in continued high rates of illness and mortality due to preventable causes amongst underprivileged groups, highly disturbing.
NAVYA TARANG is a registered (Reg No: U85310CH2016NPL041186) not for profit organisation (NGO) which endeavors to ensure equitable access to quality health services for all and promote preventive healthcare for reducing preventable illness and deaths in children and mothers.
This can be achieved by establishing a network of primary health care clinics for urban poor to reduce their out of pocket expenditure on health. This will be supplemented by outreach programs for school health and preventive family health package.
