About me

As an ICU physician, I am very passionate about saving the lives of all critically ill children.  The increasing mortality of children with congenital defects has created a global humanitarian crisis! The most common congenital disease is congenital heart disease. 

India remains the world capital for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), with 300,000 children born each year, an incidence of 19.2/1000 live-births[1]. Without medical/surgical care, more than 94,000 of CHD children die before their 1st birthday (averaging 257 deaths/day), contributing >10% of the Infant Mortality Rate, many more die in infancy or in the preschool ages![2]  Only a small fraction of children with CHD can afford cardiac surgery, which can cost over US$5000 in India.

Heart to Heart (H2H) Foundation is dedicated to saving the lives of all children born with CHD by supporting FREE pediatric cardiac surgeries for these poor children, in collaboration with the group of Sanjeevani Hospitals currently operating in Naya Raipur (Chhattisgarh), Palwal (Haryana), and, Kharghar (Navi Mumbai).   H2H wants to break the vicious “health-poverty cycle” affecting the underprivileged, particularly in rural areas.  Since February 2014, these hospitals have provided totally free-of-cost primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare exclusively to children with CHD (with no billing department or payment counter located in these hospitals!).
