Patients & Communities
Any health care delivery system usually comprises of three major stakeholders: the financiers, the implementers, and the beneficiaries or the patients. While the first two remain at the forefront, it’s the patients, who remain voiceless or invisible. Despite being the most important pillar of the health care structure who should be the center of attention at every moment in health care planning and delivery, they are too often left voiceless.
Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre and the Leprosy-TB & Blindness Control Programme, has always brought patients, their family members and the community to the center of all preventive and curative activities. We give them an opportunity to participate equally in all decisions pertaining to their health ranging from prevention, promotion, treatment, and rehabilitation. Similarly we have initiated all of our community development projects with community as a vocal and active partner.
So at MALC, our patients, their families and communities do have a voice, quite distinct and clear…..
Lets hear what do they say….
