This journey from micro to macro makes the CSR initiatives more effective and sustainable. For every life touched there is a larger story of the community and the village.

Remote location and difficult terrain results in lack of access to proper healthcare facilities for the poor and the old. Most ailing old people give up hope of timely treatment.

Health Barmer is one of the most remote districts in the country and its difficult terrain has posed many challenges in providing access to healthcare services. The established primary healthcare centres are plagued by under-staffing, amongst other issues, affecting their delivery of services. Lack of health facilities in the vicinity and nonavailability of female doctors result in absence of proper maternal healthcare. Lack of awareness on health issues pertaining especially to women and children is widespread in the region, resulting in high child and maternal mortality rate. Cairn India’s focus in Barmer for health issues is on promoting awareness and facilitating responsive and efficient healthcare system. We have actively participated and initiated health camps to make the masses conscious of water usage, immunization and sanitation. As Cairn’s presence in Rajasthan has increased through the years, we have balanced local concerns be it cataract, malaria, immunization, TB eradication and neo-natal care by supporting state health projects through doctors’ workshops, training of health volunteers and helping provide health facilities. The routes have been multiple - health camps, puppet shows, street plays, folk songs, and magic shows to spread awareness and deliver the message in an impactful manner. Cairn is also managing mobile health vans to reach the community, in a bid to improve access to healthcare particularly in the remote areas and to less privileged sections, who find it difficult to travel miles to reach healthcare facilities.
