Service to the Community

History & Structure

U-Care is a very young organization, which has been established in 2019. It is a part of U-Inc, a larger venture that has activities and services covering multiple industries.

U-Care has been established to enable effective healthcare Delivery, to communities and groups; that have limited access to healthcare. This includes displaced individuals (Refugees) & People living in under developed countries with poor access to healthcare.

Vision & Ambitions

Across the world, despite a clear understanding of the benefits of preventative health over reactive care, communities have not been able to adopt this approach consistently. Disadvantage communities are particularly in need of immediate medical services for health issues arising from trauma, overcrowding, malnourishment, diarrhoea, respiratory infections, etc.

Voluntary medical & allied health teams work hard to meet these demands and little, if any, possibility exits to run preventative health program. It is our endeavor to reach out to organizations involved in support and care of disadvantage communities and work with them to establish such programs that will yield larger benefits in the medium and long term.

UNSDG Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

Significant strides have been taken by the healthcare industry, fueled by

(1)  sizeable investments into private sector hospitals and clinics,

(2) national campaigns and programs covering key health issues recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and

(3) the commitment to meet targets defined under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG), in particular SDG #3.

However, achievements are far from expectations, with the trend being reactive care instead of preventive care. Brick-and-mortar facilities cater more to secondary and tertiary care, while primary care remains hugely fragmented. Barring childhood vaccinations and inconsistent nutritional advice limited to cities and larger towns, preventive measures that would catch health problems early, reduce morbidity and mortality, and progressively reduce the burden of disease, are lacking. No doubt, the focus on maternal and newborn health in line with WHO recommendations increasingly addresses the pediatric population under 5 years. However, the greatest physical, mental and socio-emotional development occurs between 5 to 18 years; this population segment will become the future working citizens of the country.
