    New Delhi, India – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has illuminated 20 primary health centers (PHC) in Rajasthan using solar lighting, under its Swasthya Kiran CSR program. Under this project, executed in partnership with FINISH Society, the company has installed 2.5 KW solar power plants in each health center to enable sustainable and un-interrupted access to lighting, thereby enhancing the healthcare services offered to local residents.

     

    These 20 primary health centers are spread across Udaipur, Nagaur, Baran and Sirohi districts in Rajasthan. Applauding the company’s efforts in enhancing the healthcare experience at the tertiary level in the district, Shree Peeyush Samariya, IAS, District Magistrate, Nagaur, shared an appreciation letter with the company at the Republic Day event held in the district.

     

    Inaugurating the event, Abhijit Banerji, Member Secretary, FINISH Society said, “In smaller districts of Rajasthan, Primary Health Centres (PHCs) like these are the nerve centers as they provide the maximum percentage of out-patient care, including noncommunicable diseases and maternal and child health services. However, erratic electricity supply remains a major challenge that prevents these PHCs from performing to their full potential. Hence, this fortunate partnership between Signify and FINISH Society is a perfect answer to these timeworn issues and ensures uninterrupted power supply to maintain quality health services in these districts of Rajasthan.”

    Our Swasthya Kiran CSR program aims to create safer and well-illuminated healthcare spaces. PHC’s are a vital cog in the healthcare infrastructure of the country, delivering last mile healthcare services to the country’s heartland. However, the poor electricity supply can really hinder their output. With our latest project, the PHC’s get sustained access to electricity using solar power, which in turn significantly enhances the quality of healthcare services offered. The project has also improved the overall environment for the doctors, nurses and patients visiting the center. We are proud to associate with FINISH society for this project to light up 20 PHC’s in four districts of Rajasthan."
