“Only when the body is free from diseases and an individual can contribute to the socio-economic growth of the nation, the nation prospers. To accelerate India’s progress towards prosperity, we bring to the nation an initiative that seeks to provide society a platform that delivers freedom from ill-health to all, through the participation and contribution of all. I pray to all members of the community to join us in this public mission of creating a healthy society.”
– Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah, Chairman & M.D – GNRC Hospitals Ltd.
Our aim is to touch one billion lives and inculcate health seeking behavior among members of the population, to build a healthy India. To facilitate people from various walks of life adopt healthy lifestyle practices, we conduct several activities through Swasthya Yatra, a public service initiative.
To commemorate the completion of 67 years of Independence of the nation, GNRC (formerly known as Guwahati Neurological Research Centre), in association with several mass organizations, facilitated the launch of a mass-awakening programme titled ‘Swasthya Yatra’ (Health March) on August 17, 2014. The Swasthya Yatra is an initiative that aims to build awareness and facilitate concerted action by community members about hygiene, sanitation, and healthy lifestyle practices. The Yatra seeks to encourage individuals to achieve freedom from ill-health through preventive, promotive and curative healthcare.
