Jan Swasthya Sahyog (JSS) was established in 2000 by a group of socially conscious health and allied professionals, many of whom underwent training together at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. Not satisfied with a techno-centric, hospital-based vision of tertiary healthcare, the group decided to base itself in a rural area and evolve a people-centric, community-based model of primary healthcare. The empowerment of village communities to prevent and treat illness has been central to the work of JSS.
Working in rural India in collaboration with the poor as well as with governments and voluntary organizations, Jan Swasthya Sahyog strives to be part of the solution to the vast unaddressed problems of Rural Health.
