Book Description

More than 63 million individuals – representing almost 6% of India’s population – slide into poverty annually, due to the debilitating burden of critical illnesses afflicting them or their family members – even as we endlessly debate and discuss ways and means of providing affordable healthcare to all. Hope Dawns in the East tells the story of a unique healthcare model that resulted from the emotional torment of a son who witnessed the pain his mother had to endure for lack of treatment. Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah, born into the family of an impoverished marginal farmer in Assam, devised a model that facilitates access to affordable, quality healthcare for all. His mission – overcoming significant odds – to establish a hospital that inverted the prevalent healthcare delivery model and offered universal access to affordable, quality healthcare, is captured in this book.
