Niramaya Health Foundation is a non-profit and non-government organization started in June 2001 in Mumbai for improving health of the communities it serves. Niramaya was conceptualized even before that, in 1999, to tackle commonly found ‘Micronutrient Deficiencies’ in preschool children. Originally an endeavor of Pratham Mumbai Education Initiative to improve the health of balwadi (pre-school) children, Niramaya took shape and came into existence. Since Niramaya’s inception the healthcare activities have broadened beyond child health and nutrition to good health for all. Niramaya has also expanded the range of the healthcare activities from curative to preventive and promotive care.
Niramaya believes in carrying out cost effective, measurable and sustainable health care projects and programs for marginalized communities.
