The Ila Trust – A non-profit NGO providing free Healthcare for the underserved in New Delhi. The backbone of the Ila Trust’s work is the two mobile clinics that are operated across several slums in Delhi. The clinics see patients in places from where they can spare a few minutes to get much-needed primary care – at their homes and before they go to work. The Trust operates these mobile medical clinics six days a week, and treats more than 100,000 patients a year.
Falling sick in Delhi can be dangerous for the poor and under-served. Private providers are expensive and of variable quality. The public health system, where present, is often overloaded and does not cover the high cost of medications and other expensive supplies. Many poor people, or those just making ends meet, can descend into abject poverty as a result of falling ill. The Ila Trust seeks to take care of the poor and under-served by providing healthcare at no cost to the patient.
