Our efforts are dedicated to four aspects of head injury and brain trauma.
Awareness & Prevention – Pre-Hospital Care – In-Hospital Care – HomeRehabilitation
At IHIF, our mission is to foster the development of a comprehensive brain trauma care system in India. Simultaneously, we focus on conducting awareness programs to educate the masses about the scourge of TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). With India unfortunately being the country with the highest rate of head injury in the world, we also take it upon ourselves to spread awareness on safety precautions, especially on the roads. Alongside this, we are tirelessly building upon the effective provision of pre-hospital care through first-aid training andthe provision of neuro-rehabilitation through IHIF rehab centres, two of which are up and running in Delhi and Jodhpur.
Over the past few years and our efforts in this field, we have realised that more than treatment and rehabilitation, it’s preventive measures and pre-hospital care during the ‘golden hour’ after a head injury case, that actually differentiate in decreasing the deaths due to head injury every year. A lot more can be done with a robust law, so we work to bring effective laws and ensure their strict enforcement.
Our efforts are showing results, especially with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, who have promised a new Road Transport and Safety Bill. We look forward to safer roads in India, and soon!
