Health Referral Scheme - Kshema

The Conception

The vision of Kadamba Foundation was to assist and achieve Public Good in all sectors & segments of the society. Uttara Kannada District was lacking Speciality Hospitals and the underprivileged rural population had a very minimal access to affordable and quality Health Care. Consequently an alternative arrangement had to be invented and thus the innovative Idea of Health Referral Scheme was conceptualized.

The Inception

Accordingly Kadamba, set in motion a program inclined with Public Health in 2003 with an alliance through the renowned KSHEMA hospital of Mangaluru. K.S. Hegde Medical Academy (KSHEMA), the Institution is named after its founder, the visionary, Late Justice K S Hegde, former Justice of the Supreme Court of India and former Speaker of Lok Sabha. Kadamba initiated Health Camps all through the district, with special attention to remote hamlets and habitats.

The Contribution

The Health Referral Services since its commencement has been a very successful campaign encompassing the entire deserving populace with appropriate and professional approach. Thousands of poor patients have been benefitted by this activity till today. We are largely indebted to the humanitarian & compassionate participation of the staff of KSHEMA and specifically are beholden to Shri Vinay Hegde, Chair Person of KSHEMA. The professional dedication of the doctors of KSHEMA and their selfless service in this campaign is unfathomable.

The Transformation

This Health Referral initiative of Kadamba has been very successful in providing quality health care to the weaker sections of the society. The under privileged, poor public whoever were badly in need of advanced healthcare and complex surgeries are regularly sent to KSHEMA Hospital. On an average a bare minimum of 3 to 4 patients per day are availing advanced health care benefits from KSHEMA even today and it’s a continuous process. In addition to this ongoing referral health service project in association with KSHEMA, Kadamaba has also aligned with IMA-Sirsi and Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Dental College, Dharwad and conducting numerous health camps in rural sectors. Today Kadamba family takes pride about this health mission where thousands of rural underprivileged people are benefited annually. Our institutionalized efforts had really transformed the lives of numerous beneficiaries till date.
