SAVERA focuses on providing access to preventive and remedial healthcare education for a range of stakeholders through various channels of communication like publications, audio-visual communication, children’s books, pictures and posters, catering to diverse target groups.
It seeks to provide a platform to share research, findings and trends, creating awareness on critical health issues and works to drive opinion towards viable options.
A focus of the SAVERA programme is also to create a credible knowledge repository of healthcare and wellness information that can be accessed and used by all.
preventive health awareness
Everyone should have the right to a healthy life. To achieve this goal there is an increasing need not only to provide remedial healthcare services but to educate people and generate awareness and bring focus to preventive health awareness, especially to those who have limited financial resources.
These initiatives range from communication targeted at individual members of society helping them maintain a healthy lifestyle and to those who are susceptible to unique health issues, helping them manage these risks in a more informed manner. Making information and data available in an easy-to-understand manner would not only help address these issue but also reduce misconceptions and myth created through ignorance.

HEALTH INFORMATION REPOSITORY
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.
