Dayasparsha Hospital - Bridging the Gap in HIV Patient Care
Once plagued by the absence of medical aid in proximity, the Dayabhavan community faced untimely losses among the parents of resident children. This somber reality catalyzed the birth of a visionary project – one exclusively dedicated to serving HIV patients.
In the heart of Bhaktharahalli, Kunigal, a palliative care unit arose in June 2006. Initially, it embraced ten patients at a time, yet its impact extended far beyond. Within the year, over a thousand patients had been tended to, transcending seven adjoining districts. Gradually, this unit transformed into a comprehensive treatment, care, and support center. In a significant leap forward, Tumkur Urban Development Authority (TUDA) granted a Civic Amenities (CA) site in Geddalahalli, Tumkur. By February 2014, the center relocated and blossomed into Dayasparsha Hospital, situated at the district's heart for heightened accessibility.
