Heath care has travelled a long way from Curative and Preventive Methods.
As regards serving rural and tribal people, VSSS runs seven rural health centres and several satellite sub-centres. The activities are mainly based on curative, preventive and promotive aspects of primary health care programme of the Govt. of India and World Health Organization. On an average 51,330 persons were served annually during the last 5 years.
Prevention is better than cure. In this regard, with the assistance of the All India Institute of Hygiene and Public Health, and following W.H.O. guidelines, this Organization has formulated a detailed project of a total Preventive Programme.
