An initiative for Rational Treatment and Training
Amader is run by Foundation for Health Action (FHA) is a non-profit organization (Trust) without any connection with any political party. The organizers come from different strata of the society, with various expertises with one common goal of social service.
The core philosophy of Amader Haspatal, is not to let any patient, however poor or sick, feel humiliated in any way. One of the main reasons why many poor people shun public health facilities – if they exist at all in their areas – is the harshness and indifference with which they are treated by hospital staff. This is about putting the concept of ‘care’ back into healthcare. “There is no way, in a large country like India , we can wait till we have qualified doctors everywhere. We need to engage positively with existing rural doctors and not make them outlaws,”
