Challenge

In rural Meghalaya, access to healthcare services remains limited, posing significant challenges to the well-being of the population. Concerning health indicators, including average lifespan, infant and maternal mortality rates, underscore the urgency for proactive healthcare measures. Preventive healthcare, through regular screenings, vaccinations, and health education, becomes imperative to detect and intervene early in potential health issues, reducing the reliance on costly treatments or hospitalizations.
