The #Mainbhihero movement, flagship initiative of Tech Mahindra Foundation, the CSR arm of Tech Mahindra Pvt. Ltd. is back with another round to encourage the underprivileged youth of our nation to take-up healthcare courses and secure jobs with leading hospitals and multispecialty as Allied Healthcare Professionals.

The movement aims to bridge the widening gap between India’s healthcare infrastructure and highly skilled healthcare professionals. Thus, it reaches out to different sections of society (mainly the low income groups) and encourages them to join paramedical courses, become allied healthcare professionals and contribute towards the country’s low ranked healthcare infrastructure.

Commenting on the movement, CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra, said, “Individual Social Responsibility (ISR) is about being in a symbiotic relationship with our immediate surroundings, communities, society and the world at large.The #MainBhiHero movement, not only encourages us to further the ISR initiative and Rise for Good but also addresses the issue of skill gap faced by the industry today. I urge one and all to contribute towards this initiative that aims at creating a pool of skilled and qualified healthcare professionals.”

Speaking about the initiative, Dr. Loveleen Kacker, CEO, Tech Mahindra Foundation, says, “At the Tech Mahindra SMART Academies for Healthcare, we are trying to change the definition of the word Hero. The youth come here as students and leaves as healthcare professionals with lifelong skills, employment, and a feeling to serve and improve the healthcare services of our country. Now that's exactly like a Hero.”

India has been ranked 145 among 195 countries in Healthcare access and quality. With such a huge shortage of over 4 million Allied Healthcare Professionals, our country is fighting a new battle of its own healthcare infrastructure.

The initiative #Mainbhihero under Tech Mahindra’s SMART Academy for Healthcare creates awareness around the important role of Allied Healthcare Professionals in our country’s healthcare infrastructure.

Moreover, #Mainbhihero movement also reaches out to hospitals and various medical facilities to join the initiative as Training and Placement partners of Tech Mahindra’s SMART Academy.
