CSR: SBI Capital Markets Ltd Public Health Centre refurbished in Nashik, Maharashtra

SBI Capital Markets Ltd

SBI Capital Markets Ltd (SBICAPS), India’s leading investment bank, has been working in partnership with Concern India Foundation for the last three years to strengthen the basic infrastructure of health centers in the Maharashtra districts of Raigad and Nashik as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts. SBICAPS has been working to make basic healthcare facilities accessible to all since 2020, and has funded 15 Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC) and 1 Community Healthcare Centre in the Maharashtra districts of Raigad, Palghar, and Nashik. 

Strengthening sub-centres and primary health care centers not only improves the health and well-being of millions of people, but it also reduces mortality rates. Last year, two sub-health centres and one primary health center in Igatpuri, Nashik district, received infrastructure, medical and surgical equipment, medical consumables, and medical services for the region’s tribal inhabitants. In addition, the rural hospital in Ghoti received a TYPE-C ambulance to provide emergency services to the surrounding villages. 

To commemorate the completion of work in the Kanchangaon and Talogha health centres in Nashik, Shri Rajay Sinha, MD & CEO, SBICAPS, and Shri Shesh Ram Verma, President & COO, SBICAPS unveiled the plaque in the presence of Dr. Kapil Aher, Deputy Director Health, Nashik Division, Dr. Sudhakar More, District Health Officer, Dr. Yuvraj Deore, Additional District Health Officer, Mr. M.B Deshmukh.

“SBICAPS has been actively pursuing and endorsing community improvement efforts in varying capacities across India, supporting several social initiatives in healthcare, education, environment, poverty alleviation, child development, vocational training, and women empowerment.” Given the impact of the COVID pandemic, ‘upgradation of primary healthcare facilities’ has been one of our CSR program’s major activities in recent years. 

Following the intervention, access to basic healthcare facilities increased, and ambulances were made available where there was a high demand, lowering travel costs and time for beneficiaries. Furthermore, the local population is not need to travel too far for minor treatments that would otherwise be unavailable in these PHCs due to a lack of equipment and facilities. Solar panels mounted directly on the roof have allowed doctors to perform medical treatments even when the power is out.
