Our commitment to nationwide healthcare

Anyone who has recognized the evil has already healed it quickly.

Arogya means "free of disease" and this program is committed to improving health care across Champawat district with a population of 260,000.

Our main focus is on the care of pregnant women, infants and young children with the primary goal of significantly reducing maternal and infant mortality.
This is done in close cooperation with the state and with the involvement, guidance and employment of the local population under the direction of Dr. med. Sushil Sharma and his team. Thanks to his more than 30 years of experience in setting up and leading the NGO Aarohi, Dr. Sushil has succeeded in launching this new medical project in Champawat. 

He has also joined forces with some very experienced and imaginative "health workers" and has been able to win two charitable foundations for his organization. He works closely with the local government and use his close connection to the army doctors who run some very well maintained hospitals in the barren Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. These workers are to be used for medical camps in the future. 

This project started already in 2018, spread over a period of 10 years. It got off to a very successful start. In past years, many necessary bureaucratic steps have already been taken to successfully continue the project.
