GE Healthcare to manage Banavaram PHC in Tamil Nadu

With a view to providing affordable healthcare, GE Healthcare has inked a pact with the Tamil Nadu Government to administer and manage the Banavaram Primary Health Centre (PHC) in the state.

The company's Asian-Pacific American Forum (APAF) will be contributing around Rs 45 lakh (US $90,000) for a two-year programme that will include creating a medical technology infrastructure at the clinic and training its employees in its use. At the end of the two-year programme, all equipment will be donated to the PHC.

APAF is an organization consisting more than 4,000 GE employees who have come to the US from Asia and the Pacific Islands. The forum is keen to improve the quality of life in their regions, particularly in developing countries. Their donations support GE's 'healthymagination' initiative, to make quality healthcare accessible and affordable.
