Hospital Management Asia Award for A Healthy Start - 2015

Indraprastha Apollo Hospital was an Excellence Award winner under the Corporate Social Responsibility category for the Hospital Management Asia awards 2015. The awards ceremony was held in Yangon, Myanmar, on September 4, 2015.

This prestigious award has proven the significance of A Healthy Start as a CSR project and encourages further expansion of activities to support underprivileged children.

The HMA awards committee noted that “the hospital’s award winning project – A Healthy Start-Sanitation & Drinking Water for Underprivileged School Children, project reaches out to socio-economically under-privileged school children, addressing their drinking water, sanitation and hygiene needs. Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) schools in Badarpur, an urban village proximate to the hospital, were identified for the project. MCD schools have poor drinking water and sanitation facilities. Water borne diseases are common, leading to malnutrition, poor physical and mental development. A Healthy Start aims to improve sanitation, access to clean drinking water and hygiene awareness for children and their mothers. This will help ensure children’s’ healthy growth and development.”
