Imagine not being able to go to the doctor when you're unwell or to the dentist when you have a toothache.

This is the reality many people in India and other developing countries face today. They simply don't have access to everyday health services that most Australians take for granted.

Since 1997, Equal Health has provided free health care to thousands of people in need in developing countries which makes a lasting difference to people's lives.

They bring sight to the blind, relief from dental pain, freedom of movement for people with disabilities and improved health through providing access to everyday health care.

There is a problem however, with large crowds attending Equal Health's make shift clinics in remote villages - in community halls or even under the shade of a tree - many people are unable to be treated.

We need your help to change more lives for the better.

Equal Health is seeking corporate sponsors who share Equal Health's passion for helping people in need in developing countries and will invest in furthering Equal Health's programs well into the future.

Funding is required for a range of community capacity building programs:

  • Type 2 diabetes education program - where Australian health professionals equip Indian health workers with skills and resources to improve the health of people living with and at risk of type 2 diabetes in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.

  • Special education programs - improving the skills of special education teachers in West Bengal.

  • Establishing a community garden to improve nutrition and provide opportunities for income generation and sustainable development in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.

  • Improving the oral hygiene of school children in rural areas in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.

  • Provision of a transportable dental surgery.

  • Establishment of a Dental Centre in Trichy.
