Despite the fact that approx. 70% of Indian population lives in rural areas, access to healthcare in
these areas remains a challenge. As per 2012 McKinsey report on healthcare in India, the urban rich
access healthcare at a rate that is double that of the rural poor and 50 percent more than the national
average. Also, for the 300 million Indian citizens who live below the poverty line, even ordinary
healthcare costs are prohibitively expensive.

been working to address this issue since last four decades by providing quality medicines for common
