As India continues to struggle with its paradoxes of growth with inequity, of having the most billionaires in the world and the largest impoverished population, the Joy of Giving Week is an opportunity to redeem ourselves. To paraphrase management guru Peter Drucker's words, when we look in the mirror in the morning, we should be looking at a citizen who takes responsibility, a person who as a neighbor cares.
HELP plans to set up patient education centers at hospitals to empower patients and their relatives to get better medical care for themselves. We provide researched, evidence-based information to people to look after themselves better - along with doctors and others in the health care field want to create an environment where each one of us feels secure in the knowledge that we are receiving the health care we deserve.
HELP feels that patients are the largest untapped health care resource and that Information Therapy is Powerful Medicine !
We help patients save money on medical care by
1. Promoting Self Care and helping them to do as much for themselves as they can
2. Helping them with Evidence-Based Guidelines , so that they can ask for the right medical treatment that they need – no more and no less
3. Helping them with Veto Power, so they can say No to medical care they don’t need, thus preventing over-testing and unnecessary surgery .
Do not hesitate to donate through GiveIndia. It is simple, totally secure and the most efficient way to help us reach our goal. You will receive tax benefit for your deduction in India.
Anonymous cheques will be posted under our NGO’s email id.
