PHM is one of the most visited, widely covered, and celebrated community health events in the country.
Experience health advantage through our interactive seminars, lifestyle exhibitions, workshops, lectures, competitions, and Health Check-up campaigns. This year, the MTNL Perfect Health Mela focuses on Affordable Healthcare.
The need for affordable healthcare
There is a wide gap between the need and availability of efficient and cost-effective healthcare services in the country. While on the one hand, India is fast becoming the hub of medical tourism and e-commerce, on the other, critical healthcare including essential medical assistance is still out of reach for millions in the rural areas and the suburbs.
The health-conscious Indian now demands access to affordable and quality healthcare. We, at HCFI, aim to bridge this gap and work towards enabling each citizen with the right to timely, efficient, and cost-effective healthcare.
