-Martin Luther King Jr.

Swasthya Swaraj is a secular, not-for-profit, organization working towards making health a reality for the poorest and unreached. Swasthya Swaraj has set up a model community health programme – Swasthya Swaraj Comprehensive Community Health Programme in the tribal-dominated Thuamul Rampur Block of Kalahandi district in Odisha, India. Our focus areas are Health and Education. We dream of a people’s movement for SWARAJ in health – a just and equitable society, free from the shackles of ill health, illiteracy and poverty.
