Swami Vivekananda
Medical Mission
"Look upon every man, woman, and everyone as God. you cannot help anyone, you can only serve: serve the Lord Himself, if you have the privilege. If the Lord grants that you can help any one of His children, blessed you are; do not think too much of yourselves. Blessed you are that that privilege was given to you when others had it not.
May all be healthy

Special Clinics

DISTRICT YOGA WELLNESS CENTRE The Mission has been selected as Swami Vivekananda District Yoga Wellness Centre –Under Public Private Partnership (PPP)- by the MORARJI DESAI NATIIONAL INSTITUTE OF YOGA, 68, Ashoka Road, Near Gole Dak Khana, New Delhi-110001.This Institute (MDNIY) is an autonomous organization under the Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India. A Yoga Vidyalayam has been started since April 2013 giving training and conducting certificate courses.




SICKLE CELL ANAEMIA DIAGNOSTIC AND COUNSELING CENTRE  The presence of Sickle Cell Anemia disease among the tribal people of Wayanad was found out by the Mission first and brought to the notice of the Government and the AIIMS, New Delhi by the Mission's chief medical officer Dr. D.D.Sagdeo. A survey was conducted at our behest with the help of AIMS New Delhi and it has been found that this disease is a genetic disorder and transmitted thorugh the genes of parents. Although tribes are mostly affected by it, Chetties of Wynad, who do not come in the list of Tribes, also are among the patients. Diagnosis, treatment and counseling are given for this. As a result the District has seen a tremendous change in awareness of the SCD. Awareness is the most crucial point for achieving effective control of these dreaded diseases through the first component for the control programme, i.e stopping the spread of the diseas. It becomes more important for the diseases like SCD as theere is no effective curative treatment available yet and hence the age old saying "Prevention is better than cure" stands true for this disease.

PAIN AND PALLIATIVE CARE CLINIC   A Pain And Palliative Care Clinic has been set up in the hospital with the help of the Pain and Palliative Care Centre of the Calicut Medical College to translate the available knowledge in the area of Palliative Care into practical methods of supporting patients with chronic pain on account of advanced cancer, Sickle Cell Anemia and other such conditions.  This clinic is functioning on all Thursdays since May 1998 with an average number of 20 patients.


RNTCP ( Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme)
The Mission has been actively participating in this Governmental programme for eradication of Tuberculosis from our midst for the last 10 years as a Microscopy and Treatment Centre and has obtained Certificate of appreciation from the Government of Kerala.

TB day

AXSHAYA: This is a project envisaged to determine the Tuberculosis patients in tribal colonies. In this, we are conducting field investigation and awareness campaigns, camps, slide shows etc. While India has already made great strides in providing access to basic “DOTS” (the globally recognized strategy for TB Control), this programme under the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases (The Union) and I Union South-East Asia Office, New Delhi and under direct control of CHAI, (Catholic Health Association of India, will provide better access to TB services, especially in geographically difficult areas, vulnerable communities and tribal populations.  They feel that India still has one of the highest estimated incidents of Multi Drug Resistant-TB cases (MDR-TB) in the world.
