We live in an unequal world where science has revolutionized medicine, but sadly there has been no revolution for ensuring equal access to healthcare for all. Inequalities in healthcare are the most shocking and inhumane of all inequalities. The shortage of doctors and their maldistribution between urban and rural areas contribute to inequitable health care delivery. This inequality is stark when it comes to remote tribal areas. Strategies are being sought by the government and universities to address this inequality and the challenges in the needy areas.

As a health-focused, secular NGO working in the neediest tribal area of Kalahandi district in Odisha, Swasthya Swaraj feels the need to offer opportunities for young medical students / doctors  to explore, experience and understand the nuances of this starking inequity in healthcare.
