The Catholic Health Association of India upholds its commitment to bring ‘Health for All’. It views health as a state of complete physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being, and not merely the absence of sickness.
In order to realize the vision, CHAI endeavours to
Promote community health, understood as a process of enabling the people, especially the poor and the marginalized, to be collectively responsible to attain and maintain their health and demand health as a right, and ensure availability of quality health care at a reasonable cost.
Prevent and control communicable and non-communicable diseases as they cause a huge public health burden as well as take a heavy toll on human life in the country.
Provide relief to disaster victims in the country and bring the affected to normal level of functioning.
Ensure relief and rehabilitation to persons with disabilities.
Sustain advocacy for the cause of the poor and needy.
“the sufferings of the world should have an echo in your hearts”
