ASSOCHAM Best CSR Excellence in Healthcare Awards for Smile Foundation

NEW DELHI - Aug. 29, 2023 - PRLog -- Smile Foundation received the coveted ASSOCHAM Best CSR Excellence in Healthcare Awards, under the category of Implementing Organisation. The recognition was based on excellence achieved through the tele-medicine projects in Haryana's only aspirational district of Nuh (earlier known as Mewat), supported by ​SBI Cards and Payment Services Limited and implemented in collaboration with the Govt. of Haryana (District Health Administration).

The award was conferred by ASSOCHAM during the 2nd Healthcare Summit & Awards 2023 in New Delhi. Representatives from SBI Cards and Payment Services Limited joined Smile Foundation delegates in receiving the honour.

A single tele-medicine unit that began in May 2021 in Doha village of Haryana's lone aspirational district of Nuh (Mewat) grew into a project comprising 10 units at Health and Wellness Centres. Smile Foundation, in partnership with the Government of Haryana (District Health Administration) and supported by SBI Cards and Payment Services Limited, implemented the project in all four sub-divisions of Nuh, covering a population of one million.

"The District Health Administration is glad that the telemedicine project from the district of Nuh was recognized with the ASSOCHAM award. This project has been a collaboration between the Government of Haryana, Smile Foundation and SBI Card. We congratulate Smile Foundation for this achievement and hope that such interventions will be continued in Nuh district in future too," said Dr. Sarvjeet Thapar, Civil Surgeon, District Health Administration, Nuh.

"The award is a great encouragement. We thank SBI Card for supporting this innovative project and we appreciate the District Health Administration, Nuh for showing confidence in Smile Foundation.
