Wockhardt Foundation in alliance with GAIL
Wockhardt Foundation has entered into a strategic alliance with Gas Authority of India Ltd (GAIL) to jointly launch Vision 1000 healthcare programme. This will be initiated in the states of Chattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra.
Wockhardt through its Vision 1000 aims to offer primary healthcare at the doorstep of the families in rural and remote areas through a pan-India network of mobile healthcare units. Huzaifa Khorakiwala, CEO and Inspiration, Wockhardt Foundation, said, “As part of Vision 1000 expansion plan, over the next 5 years Wockhardt Foundation plans to have a network of 1000 mobile healthcare units spread across the country. The pan-India expansion will help Wockhardt Foundation to reach out to nearly 25 million people with healthcare services across the country.” He added that it is not always possible for people to travel to the primary health centres. Thus, the mobile health plans are more feasible and accessible options for them.
