Catholic Health Association of India

Non-government Organisation (NGO)


(Excerpt from the CHAI website 29 June 2021)

The Catholic Health Association of India (CHAI) is a Network of 3572 Healthcare and Social Service Institutions across India. The network is divided into 11 regional units spanning the length and breadth of the country. By serving 21 million (approximately 1.5% of India’s population) patients annually across the country, most of them poor, CHAI plays a vital role in Indian healthcare. The network’s national reach and deep grassroots presence are a unique and formidable asset, made even stronger by the profound commitment of its volunteers. The people of CHAI—Sisters and non-religious alike—translate the core values of Compassion, Affordability and Quality of Care into their daily work.
