Over the years, our network of Fortis Hospitals, diagnostic labs and retail pharmacies has generated a vast quantum of information on preventive health and cure. The SAVERA programme aims to develop a platform for collating, hosting and sharing this data, publications, and audio visual content that will be easily accessible. The idea is to create a credible data repository that can be utilised for health research including activities such as analysing emerging health trends and shifts that can serve as an early warning system to help initiate meaningful policy interventions.

A better understanding of disease terminology, symptoms and medicine usage norms can also help facilitate better administration of treatment pathways and reducing chances of error and risks.

In collaboration with our partners, SAVERA seeks to create a library of such literature which is simple to understand, in multiple languages and address the literacy and understanding levels of all audiences. While created with medical inputs, the objective it to demystify the content and convert the same into a language and style which ensures clarity in understanding.

First Aid and Basic Life Support Training

Statistics claim that 17 people die every hour on Indian Roads and 46 children die every day on Indian Roads. Over 10 LAKH people have been killed in road accidents in the past decade.

50% of road accidents could have been avoided if rapid assistance was rendered.

There is limited awareness about the number of lives that can be saved through knowledge of First Aid and Basic Life Support training. In the current situation, this is not seen as critical.
