Contribute to a fund for medicines and staff at primary health centres for poor patients, INR 5000


Rural Health Care Foundation (RHCF) is an organization striving to address the gap in the availability of low cost primary health care in rural areas. Drawing inspiration from the undying spirit to provide health care facilities to the lowest strata of the socio-economic pyramid of founder Late Arun Nevatia, the goal of RHCF is to set up primary health care centres in the remotest areas of the country and urban slums, providing OPD facilities as well as medication to the low income, hard to reach population in India.

The Basics

How It Works

• General medicine is one of the most important departments in all the RHCF primary health care centres.
• A MBBS doctor is appointed in each centre of the four centres to treat the patients.
• RHCF operates 5 centres at Siborampur, Zakaria Street, Jyotish Roy Road, Topsia and Regent Park.
• All the centres are located in urban areas and they benefit residents in the vicinity.
• Medicines prescribed by the doctor are distributed free to all the patients and feedback is taken by the paramedical staff to ensure the proper utilization of the medicines.
• Patients are asked to come back after 7 to 10 days for a re – check to ensure that they are fully recovered.

Giving Life
As we are operating in rural areas and urban slums which are economically poor and the primary health care infrastructure is non-existent. The local quacks control these helpless villagers in connivance with the big drug manufacturers and take them for a merry ride. It is unfortunate also that these villagers are not in a position even to buy those medicines prescribed by the said quacks.
Each of our centres serves the area extensively including the adjoining areas. Qualified doctors treat the patients and prescribe the required medicines which are given to them free of cost. Patients that are more serious are referred to specialist doctors in Kolkata, who are empanelled with our organization, free of cost.
Since the opening of our centres, the nexus of the local quacks and the unscrupulous dealers have seized to exist and people now have a place to get the right medical advice from a qualified doctor and get drugs without paying any money.
