About SACHi

What We do

Free Screening and Diagnosis

A team of doctors and paramedical staff conduct free cardiac screening camps for children up to the age of 16 in cities, towns and villages across India.

Awareness Building

Building awareness is the key to educating society on children's heart diseases. SACHi works to build awareness at two levels:

  • To the less educated or illiterate, economically weak sections where lack of awareness, facilities and funds often mean the children do not receive the treatment that they need.
  • To the policy-makers, corporate organisations, well-placed individuals and media to highlight the magnitude of the problem and seek their support.

Treatment & Surgery

Children requiring immediate treatment are placed at the head of SACHi's list for treatment and / or surgery based on the medical camp findings. Urgency and long-term prognosis is a factor in the generated list. SACHi does not limit its efforts only to those who have been diagnosed at the camps. Children from economically backward sections who are brought to Apollo Hospitals are also considered for free treatment.

Follow-up care

Continued monitoring of treatment and post-operative care is important in evaluating the child's progress. SACHi schedules appointments for follow-up checks and ensures that the families keep track of their children's appointments. To further facilitate this, SACHi has also established a telemedicine system that enables the team at Apollo to touch base with doctors in the district hospitals and oversee their young patients' follow-up care. This has the added benefit of keeping the district doctors abreast with the latest developments and treatments in heart diseases.
