Serving and Building a Healthy Community for the Tribal Population
Mahan is a non-government organization that selflessly provides medical facilities to the tribal population of the Melghat region. Melghat is located in a hilly forest area in the Satpuda mountain ranges, 150 km from Amravati district of Maharashtra, Central India. Melghat is spread over two talukas – Dharni and Chikaldhara with a population of 2,50,000. Medical facilities in Melghat are grossly inadequate. The doctor to patient ratio is less than 1 M.B.B.S. doctor for every 10,000 patients.
