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.
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.
Acute conditions are severe and sudden in onset, the symptoms change or worsen rapidly
Disease that is persistent or long-lasting in its effects
Our operational model provides centralized operational support to the centres along with independent teams that focus on quality improvement and quality monitoring.
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.
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:
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 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.
