We need your help to pursue research in both basic sciences and in the application of discoveries in practical improvements to peoples’ health and medical care. Our focus is on cost-effective solutions to the health needs of India and other developing countries.

Right now we are conducting research into the novel Coronavirus and COVID-19. Please join us with a donation to help us fight the disease and end the pandemic.

You can donate for a specific field of research, or leave it open to us to allocate your gift to where it is most needed.

We have been granted a valuable income tax exemption under Section 35(1)(ii) of the IT Act, which increases the effectiveness of your net gift. For larger companies your donation for medical research projects may also be eligible as a CSR Contribution (please contact to discuss suitable projects).
