1. Swasth India Medical Centre

With a focus is on providing patient-centric, high quality and affordable primary-preventive healthcare services, we operate a network of ‘one-stop- shop’ clinics, the ‘Swasth India Medical Centres’, in 2 departments – family medicine and dentistry.

All Swasth India Medical Centre’s are identical units in terms of their formats and offerings.

  • Clinic size: 300 sq. ft.
  • Staff size: 1 doctor, 1 dentist in each shift and 3 assistants
  • Timings: 9:30 am-1:30 pm and 5:30pm-9:30 pm
  • Located in common market areas
  • Each SIMC caters to a catchment of 100,000 people

Our Target: The Urban Poor

Our customers live in the slums of Mumbai or in low- income housing, with a per capita daily income of approx. Rs. 70 - 250. Average family size is 5. An example of a family would be a full- time daily wage-earner (e.g. an auto-rickshaw driver earning Rs. 10,000 per month), with probably an additional earning member at half his income (e.g. his wife who works as a maid and earns Rs. 4,000 per month), and 3 dependent children.

In Swasth’s absence, given the inadequacy of public health infrastructure, as many as 90% of our patients would have to resort to expensive private providers, spending up to 15% of their household income on healthcare. Valuable time & money would be spent in traveling to multiple providers (doctor, pharmacist, laboratory, nursing home). Further, quality of care received would be unreliable due to rampant malpractice. Hence, the unmet need of our target segment is affordable, accessible and high-quality healthcare services.

Sustainability of our model

Our model is cost-effective – we have a 40% lower system cost than private providers. This is due to several innovations like a low-cost drug supply chain, in-house pathology lab and training of staff hired from the community. Based on these lower costs and a fee for service models, operational break-even of a replicable “unit” is expected within 2-4 years of launch.


2. Aanand Aalaya

Currently, there are very few interventions focused on wellbeing which can prevent and even reverse chronic conditions, which are constantly on the rise in India.

The aim of Aanand Aalaya is to develop a model of Wellness and Preventive Healthcare integrated with the Healthcare Services and Health Financing Networks. It also aims to develop a model of Wellness which can be replicated locally at the community level without being dependent on a provider or financing networks.

The initiatives currently operating under Aanand Aalaya are:

  • Establish a self-sustainable Model of a Community Wellness Centre, working in collaboration with the Healthcare Services Network (HSN)
    • Pilot 1-2 Wellness Centres
    • Pilot set of paid Wellness Services
    • Pilot areas and methodology of collaboration with HSN and Financing
  • Develop and Pilot a Wellness-focused Health Curriculum for School going children
  • Conclude a Nutrition program for 0-5 years children to sustainably reduce the rate of malnutrition

3. Swasth Yog Institute

Today the word Swasth has come to mean healthy. However, it’s deeper, Sanskrit meaning is to be established in our real Self. This is what the Swasth Yog Institute aims to bring alive in the world.

The vision of Swasth Yog Institute is for all to live fully and freely. The path towards this vision is the true concept of Yog - internal and external harmony.

The mission of Swasth Yog Institute is to create an ecosystem which allows for a state of internal harmony within our body, energies, mind and emotions- thus aligning us to our true self, and freeing us to live our potential in external harmony.

Since it’s inception in 2017, Swasth Yog Institute has designed and delivered 2 key programs:

  • A 40 hour “Journey to Wellbeing” course for patients suffering from a range of chronic conditions. 8 pilot batches, each over a 6 week period, covering 90 patients witnessed 60% reduction in symptoms on a self-reported scale covering over 50 parameters with many ailments such as PCOD, infertility and Hypertension reversed post the course. Based on the learnings, a shorter “Child Health & Nutrition” course was designed and delivered to 80+ women, with similar outcomes.
  • Yogic Organization building program- 75 staff members of Swasth Foundation underwent life coaching with a panel of 20 coaches over a 3-6 month period. The program received satisfaction ratings of 88%, and enabled staff to take strides in realizing their potential – increase in confidence, better interpersonal relationships and clarity on vision for themselves.

Over the next 5 years, Swasth Yog Institute aims to achieve the following:

  • Significant, proven impact on a wide range of participants through empowering, high-quality, sustainable, replicable programs
  • A world-class body of work, harmonizing the East and the West, scaled by open-distribution through multiple channels and pathways
  • An enduring organization embodying “being the change”, supported by a vibrant community of leaders and with a credible brand

By 2023, we aim to have 1,000 facilitators equipped through certifiable trainings to deliver Swasth Yog Institute's programs, and impacting various aspects of well-being - physical, mental, social, spiritual and universal.

Future programs in the pipeline are:

  • Yog Facilitator, Yog Trainer and Yog Leader: For non-profit leaders, both at the grassroot and organizational level
  • Condition-specific variations of the “Journey to Wellbeing” course: For metabolic syndrome, anxiety & depression, cancer, maternal and child care
