Fortis Charitable Foundation was set up in 2005 with the intention of supporting preventive and remedial healthcare services to vulnerable and underprivileged sections of society.
The work of the Foundation is supported and executed by two entities. The Fortis Charitable Foundation (FCF) - a Trust set up in 2005 and The Fortis Foundation (FF) - a Section 8 Company set up in 2013.
