Grameen Healthcare Services
The mission of the Grameen Healthcare Services is to establish sustainable best practices in a broad range of Healthcare services for a broad market including the poor. Grameen Healthcare enables the poor to be self sufficient in addressing their healthcare needs such that they can accept but not require outside assistance. Grameen Healthcare Services was established in 2006 and the first Grameen Eye Hospital opened in 2008. Regardless of a patient’s ability to pay, everyone receives the same quality treatment.
Seva Foundation works closely with the Grameen Healthcare Services to create affordable eye care through the new eye hospitals in the Bogra, Barisal and Thakurgaon districts. Seva sponsors training of the hospitals’ entire staff – doctors, nurses, and managers. In addition, through the TOMS partnership, Seva has augmented Grameen’s existing support by contributing toward subsidized eye care services.
