DIVINE MOTHER & CHILD
HEALTH PROGRAM

Aside from curative care, it is also imperative to focus on the preventive and educative healthcare spectrum. It is in this context that the hospital launched the Divine Child Health Program in 2013- a comprehensive early detection and systemic health screening program for rural school going children. The program expanded into the Divine Mother & Child Health Program in September 2017, focusing on Preventive Care for Pregnant Women and Children.
