No one deserves to die of heart disease, just because they cannot afford treatment

Heart Care Foundation of India strives to end preventable cardiac deaths in the country

Any person suffering from a heart disease in need of treatment can apply for financial and technical assistance by +9958771177.

While everyone is talking about the prevention and reversal of heart disease in the 21st century India, not much has been spoken about those who continue to die in the city because of the sheer inaccessibility of cardiac care.

Around one percent of children in India (1 in every 125 babies) are born with a congenital heart defect. There was a time when there was a no cure for this and parents were just informed of the inevitable fate of their child. However medical advancements over the past few decades have made it possible for most children suffering from congenital heart disease to live normal lives post timely surgical intervention. However the cost of surgery, which is a few lakhs, is out of reach for a large number of people living below the poverty line in India. For such families, the situation remains grim.

Recognizing the gap in the health care demand and supply in the country, and determined to ensure that no person dies of heart disease just because they cannot afford treatment, the Sameer Malik Heart Care Foundation was founded. An initiative of the Heart Care Foundation of India, a national non-profit organization, the project has seen over 400 success stories till date. As per the guidelines of the project, any person belonging to the economically weaker sections of the society in need of cardiac intervention can apply for the benefits of the fund by calling the helpline number +919958771177.

Take the case of Baby Siya for instance. Not having even turned one, she was diagnosed with holes in her heart because of which she developed frequent episodes of pneumonia and was underweight. Her father Manoj; was a driver with a monthly income of Rs 6000. Mother Krishna was a housewife. Diya needed a corrective surgery to close a hole in the ventricular septum, one in the arterial septum and closure of a tiny PDA. The cost for the same was quoted to be 2.5 lakh by a private hospital. Unable to put together funds, the family lost hope for her survival until they read about the fund. Dr. KK Aggarwal, President of Heart Care Foundation of India personally evaluated her case, and she was adopted by the fund and operated successfully at Medanta - the Medcity, Gurgaon. Siya has been cured completely, and her family looks forward to making her a doctor in the future.

Countries across the globe are witnessing the development of state-of-the-art heart care techniques, which have made the identification and the cure of cardiac diseases much easier. Nowadays, medical experts are coming up with minimally invasive surgical treatments for both congenital and rheumatic heart diseases patients. However, in a developing country like India many patients, especially from the economically backward sections of the society are still dying because of lack of medical assistance and affordability.
