HEALTHCARE
The World Health Organization defines health as “A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” The health programmes undertaken by various Tata Companies are holistic in nature and encompass a broad array of issues ranging from critical healthcare facilities to community engagement and sensitization. Most of the health threats are common to multiple cultures.
Is there a health risk that you haven't yet identified in your surrounding? Or is it something you can't seem to make a difference to? Hope these initiatives undertaken by various Group Companies, give you the idea that could save a thousand lives.

MATERNAL & NEWBORN CARE

Reducing Infant Mortality
The objective of Project MANSI (Maternal and Newborn Survival Initiative) at Tata Steel is to reduce infant mortality in 167 villages in Seraikela-Kharsawan district of Jharkhand, through Home Based Newborn Care (HBNC). It has brought down the infant mortality rate by 39% and neonatal mortality rate by 46%.
Providing Critical Medical Facilities
Tata Motors provides curative and preventive medical facilities in communities with special focus on maternal and child healthcare. Medical clinics provide necessary medicine and also spread relevant social messages. The Company has also established a state-of-the-art 16-bed Malnutrition Treatment Centre and that has saved lives of over 600 children since its inception.

HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT

Focusing on Sustainable Community Development
Tata Chemicals established Tata Chemicals Society for Rural Development (TCSRD) in Mithapur, Gujarat in 1980. It was born out of a need to engage, understand and address the requirements of its neighbouring communities. In the last three decades, TCSRD's focused interventions and participatory approach has ensured that the community members become promoters of not only their own development but also that of the society at large.
Preparing Kids of Steel
Tata Kids of Steel is the world's largest and longest-running children's triathlon series. The initiative encourages children (8 to 13 years old) to adopt a healthier lifestyle through sports and exercise. In 2012, more than 15,500 youngsters took part in 23 different Tata Kids of Steel events to mark the London 2012 Olympic Games.

MAKING HEALTHCARE ACCESSIBLE

Widening Primary Healthcare
Tata Chemicals Magadi (TCM) in Kenya has built a strong relationship with the community by providing support in the critical area of healthcare. TCM has dedicated resources to upgrade equipment and facilities at the Magadi Hospital, provide financial, material support as well as subsidized medical aid to the HIV/AIDS clinic in Nkurumani.
