Public Health Foundation of India

The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is a public private initiative that has collaboratively evolved through consultations with multiple constituencies including Indian and International academia, state and central governments, multi & bi-lateral agencies and civil society groups. PHFI is a response to redress the limited institutional capacity in India for strengthening training, research and policy development in the area of public health. Structured as an independent foundation, PHFI adopts a broad, integrated approach to public health, tailoring its endeavors to Indian conditions and bearing relevance to the countries facing similar challenges and concerns. The PHFI focuses on broad dimensions of public health that encompass promotive, preventive and therapeutic services, many of which are frequently lost in policy planning as well as in popular understanding.
Honorable 14th Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh, launched PHFI on March 28th, 2006 at New Delhi with a vision to strengthen India's public health institutional and systems capability and provide knowledge to achieve better health outcomes for all. PHFI recognizes the fact that meeting the shortfall of health professionals is imperative to a sustained and holistic response to the public health concerns in the country which in turn requires health care to be addressed not only from the scientific perspective of what works, but also from the social perspective of, who needs it the most.

Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Education Academy

Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Specialities Centre (DMDSC) established by Dr. V. Mohan and his late wife Dr. Rema Mohan, is one of the largest chain of diabetes centres in the world. It is also a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Non-Communicable Disease Prevention and Control. DMDSC was launched in 1991 with a vision to provide total Diabetes Care i.e. not only routine treatment of diabetes but also of its various complications. DMDSC is one of the few of its kind in the world to offer such a one- stop comprehensive diabetes treatment facility. Since its inception in 1991, nearly 400,000 patients with diabetes have been registered and about 30,000 new patients are added every year. DMDSC currently has 24 branches across India, which help to extend diabetes care to a wider population. The Madras Diabetes Research Foundation (MDRF), the research wing of Dr. Mohan's Group of Institutions, was founded with the vision of providing a world class environment for research in diabetes and its complications and has grown to become Asia's largest diabetes research centre. Within its short span of existence, MDRF has built up strengths in basic, clinical and epidemiological research. The quality of its research in diabetes and its complications is evidenced by over 1000 original publications in reputed peer reviewed journals and text-books. Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Education Academy (DMDEA) is the education wing of Dr. Mohan's Group of Institutions. It was established with the mission of training doctors and other health care professionals in the management of diabetes and its complications.
