Aushidhi for the Underprivileged

An Initiative to Save a Million Lives

While most of the teenagers are busy scheduling travel plans or holidaying already, Vishad Khanna, Vishad Khanna, a 17 years old, class 12th student of Delhi Public School, RK Puram, has been zealously working towards providing free of cost medicines to the underprivileged section of the society. As per The Lancet report, an estimated 8.6 million deaths in low- and middleincome countries every year are due to conditions treatable by healthcare, of which 5 million result from poor quality of care and 3.6 million from insufficient access to care. In order to overcome this problem, Vishad launched Aushidhi, an online platform which provides free of
cost medicines to the needy.
Despite having a thriving Pharma industry, several studies have claimed that there is a lack of accessibility to affordable and essential medicines in the country. India is still not able to curb the prevailing mortality rate due to the scantiness of medicinal care. This visionary leader is a student of Computer Science and has developed a portal which connects with the lifeline of needy and poor sick patients with Donors like ompany/Pharmacy/Doctor. Aushidhi is pioneering in providing free medicines and health checkups to the deprived ones who required it the most but cannot afford it. Its online platform bridges the gap between free medicine provider and people who seek medicines.

Aushidhi is a place where a donor can register and list the medicines to donate. Similarly, the end user can have the visibility of medicines in terms of Name, Details, quantity and can request for delivery. Aushidhi ensures the medicine reaches to the requester. Aushidhi collects medicines from Donor, who mostly is the Pharmaceuticals Company / Pharmacy /Doctor/Any Indian Citizen having an excess of near expiry stock lying with them. The Needy request medicines which are updated on the web catalog and Aushidhi gets it delivered free of cost.

Aushidhi also conducts various free health camps integrated with theater shows, free medical health checkup, and free medicines.
Speaking about the same, Vishad Khanna, Founder of Aushidhi, said, “I always had the zeal to do something for the society., At my early teens, I understood the harsh reality of the healthcare industry in India where on one end we are excelling and growing exponentially, and on the other end, there are still people who don’t have access to even basic medication. I realized that pharmacies, doctors, clinics, primarily the suppliers of medicines have a large stock of medicines that are nearing expiry date. Hence, most consumers don’t end up buying them, and they are disposed off even before their expiry date. Therefore, there remains a huge stock
of wasted usable-medicines. Aushidhi organizes donations of those extra-medicines from the Donors free of cost through its website, which generates a bridge between Donors and Recipient to engage with those in need through local doctors in slums, villages, etc. There is a catalog enlisting the available medicines. The needy can post their request for a medicine on the website. Aushidhi responds to their request and then delivers the medicines to the receiver at his given address, free of cost.”
Aushidhi also conducts health awareness shows under the leadership of Vishad who is also the president of the theater club of Delhi Public School R.K Puram. These theater shows showcase the preventive measures for life-threatening diseases such as Cancer, AIDS, TB, etc. Several camps have also been conducted by the team.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve introduced to your post.
    They are really convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners.
    Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of
    Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • quest bars cheap01. Dec, 2019

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?
