Bethanya health outreach projects aim to make quality healthcare affordable to the poor, even in the remotest of communities.
Health is one of Bethanya primary areas of focus. Our aim is to promote health and prevent disease in the country,
especially among communities that cannot afford to splurge on healthcare services. We do this through our own
healthcare institutions, which offer quality healthcare either free of cost or at subsidized rates. We also create
awareness among the communities in which we work, so that they can incorporate healthy lifestyles.

Blood Donation Camps are organized jointly with blood banks, in aid of Thalassemia patients every year. These camps are conducted in urban settings and encourage donors to contribute toward saving human lives.
Bethanya conducts health awareness campaigns in schools, among youth groups, and women in the communities we work with, stressing good hygiene, cleanliness, and healthy diet. We also raise awareness about the causes, symptoms, treatment and preventative methods for various diseases.
Motivated women from the Bethanya adopted villages, who have a thirst for learning and a passion to serve their communities are specifically trained by Bethanya to become Community Health Facilitators. They act as health ambassadors, promoting health and preventing disease in their own local communities.
At Bethanya, we understand the challenges faced by persons with HIV/AIDS, and do
our best to help them live healthy and happy lives.
Currently, we are providing support to over 120 children living with HIV/AIDS and seeking treatment at
the government ART centers in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu.
The following services are offered by Bethanya:
Nutritional Supplements: On a monthly basis, children are provided with nutritional supplements required
in their diet to keep them healthy despite their failed immune system.
Scholarships: Monthly scholarships support these children in their education, as most of their savings are
spent on healthcare needs.
Psycho-social support: Through home visits and one-on-one and family counseling, psycho-social support
is provided by Bethanya to these children.
Awareness against infections: As these children are especially susceptible to opportunistic infections
and diseases, we conduct awareness sessions to help them stay healthy.
