Extremely poor patients, unable to pay even the minimal fees are provided consultation fee and medicines free of cost.

Salwan Health & Holistic Care Centre, Inderpuri, New Delhi is providing infrastructural support to Max Healthcare Research unit for Non communicable disease Screening. The ambition of the Global Health Research Unit (GHRU) on Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease in South Asians is to create an inter-disciplinary environment that fosters development and implementation of acceptable, equitable, scalable and sustainable approaches to reduce the burden of type-2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in South Asia.

The surveillance project, in North India, is being led by Principal investigator Dr.Sujeet Jha. This project provides type-2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) screening and consists of health assessments such as Fasting Blood Sugar, Total Cholesterol, ECG, Spirometry (Lung Function Test), Retinal Imaging, Blood Pressure, Anthropometric Measures and a Health and Lifestyle Questionnaire to better understand Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) amongst the South Asian Population. The center uses digital high-quality health assessments that are delivered by a research trained technical team.

The centre has been running successfully since June 2019 and some of the centre’s achievements till date include:
1. NCD screening of 4200+ individuals
2. 5500+ households approached for screening
3. 800+ individuals referred to the physician

The location of SH&HCC has proven to be useful in catering to the needs of those who are less fortunate in the community due to which the research unit is able to provide screening of type-2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) to the urban slum dwellers of Inderpuri. Having received a great response from the population residing near Salwan Charitable Dispensary, the centre looks forward to making an impressive impact to reduce the burden of type-2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD).
