Gujarat is one of the fastest-growing states in India. However, it is also one of the slowest states to reduce poverty among its people. With over 60 million people in the area, more than 50% of residents are living in rural towns or villages. One of these struggling areas is Mosali.
A village of 5,000 people and many minorities living in sub-par conditions, including low literacy rates and poor health status. These conditions make it more important than ever to have a fully functional healthcare facility. Good healthcare infrastructure is a crucial step to help build a community out of poverty.
Currently, Mosali has a single, overcrowded dispensary that provides healthcare only until 4:00 pm. As a result, residents of Mosali need to travel to other towns or cities to medical care. The two closest healthcare facilities are 6 km away in Mangol and Surat, 50 km away. These places often are overcrowded, unmaintained and with long wait times. The expensive cost of travel also makes the trip to these clinics almost impossible.
Human Concern International is building a healthcare facility in Mosali to help eliminate the barriers to adequate healthcare. The Hussain Bhayat Multi-Specialty Clinic will not only serve Mosali but many surrounding villages for a total of 10,000 people

OUR STAFF COMMENTS
Currently, the Mosali area is very far behind with immunization standards compared to the rest of India. The Hussain Bhayat Multi-Specialty Clinic will allow patients to manage their health better. Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and high cholesterol, can be controlled more effectively.Mahmuda Khan
