Aarogya – Health

Tata Motors has partnered with Avanti Fellows, an NGO, to support bright students of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) schools preparing for IIT-JEE and other competitive entrance exams. As part of the programme, we provide special coaching to students at JNV Mangalore and JNV Puducherry. We have also deployed innovative peer-to-peer learning pedagogy at these places. As a result of the intervention, the overall entrance exam performance of students from these schools has significantly improved.

With this belief, we have set up community hospital infrastructure in Jamshedpur and have been running programmes to address leprosy, malnutrition, etc. for many decades now. Under our CSR programme for health – Aarogya, we operate mobile health clinics for remote, last mile tribal community outreach in Pune. We have tied up with Anganwadis and nutrition rehabilitation centres across India to ensure better nutrition and health awareness for children, pregnant women and lactating mothers. Our initiatives also focus on holding awareness sessions for adolescent girls to address their queries on puberty, health and hygiene.

Aarogya focuses on maternal and child health by adopting a holistic approach and striking a balance between preventive healthcare and curative healthcare interventions.

Addressing child nutrition and health awareness

Malnourishment among children can hamper brain development, which could lead to long-term negative impact on health, physical and mental development, as well as overall wellbeing. Tata Motors has taken several steps to address such concerns. We run a malnutrition treatment centre at Jamshedpur where severely malnourished infants and children are medically treated for three weeks so that they achieve normal health as per WHO protocols. At the company’s other locations, nutritious food is provided to Anganwadi children in nearby rural and urban slum communities. We also deploy information, education and communication campaigns in partnership with competent, reputed non-profit agencies and experts.

Preventive and curative health services

The spectrum of preventive and curative interventions of Tata Motors includes dealing with leprosy, tuberculosis, HIV/ AIDS, malaria, waterborne diseases, etc. At Jamshedpur and Lucknow, this project has been deployed for decades through Tata Motors own societies. At other locations, we partner with recognised non-profits and government hospitals to deliver health care services. In general, the pressing health care needs of communities proximate to our plants and offices determine the kind of interventions under this CSR project.

Course for General Duty Assistant

The ideal nurse-patient ratio stands at 1 nurse for every 500 people. India faces a shortage of 2.5 million nurses. Our programme aims to fill this gap. Majority of the requests for bedside attendants come from families who want a full-time caretaker for geriatrics. Tata Motors acted on this insight and in partnership with Wockhardt Health, we developed a course for General Duty Assistant. The infrastructural support to students for training in the form of laboratory, classroom furniture and scholarships has been facilitated by us. After completion of this course, students can offer their services at hospitals, nursing homes and at private homes.
