Abstract:
Health is the precious possession of all being as it is an asset for an individual and community as well. Healthy individual or community can carry out daily living activities and life enriching goal. According to WHO "health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". In the last two decades, there has been a growing concern over the performance of the health care delivery system in India. As per the Government of India's National Rural Health Mission (NHRM) Document (2005), only 10% of Indians have some form of health insurance and around 40% of Indians have to borrow money or sell their assets to meet their health care expenses. Health education dealing with health promotion, prevention of diseases through awareness, and information of availability of treatment must also be considered as essential health care. The Indian health care sector, structured in three tiers viz., primary, secondary, and tertiary, is characterized by the presence of several distinct systems of health care delivery such as the government, NGOs, charitable organizations, corporate hospitals, and smaller private clinics.
Nowadays Non-government organizations (NGO) have come to occupy an important place in India. The spread of NGOs activities in the country, as in many others parts of the world are manifest in a number of spheres and in a wide spectrum of programs. In welfare programs development - oriented initiatives, empowering women and weaker section protecting the rights of marginalized segments, protecting the environment, spreading literacy and education, the participation of NGOs sector has been impressive. In Indian society, there is a necessity of imparting health education and also to create general awareness about the governmental health programmes to the common people .In this direction NGOs are performing a variety of service and humanitarian functions. The present study has taken up to examine the working of NGOs for the delivery of health care facilities in the society.
