|Sri Sathya Sai "Health for All" Program|
It is a known fact that the cost of tertiary medical care is beyond the reach of the average person, not to mention the poor. The provision of such treatment has also become a commercial enterprise with all the attendant abuses.
Medicine for all: Medical aid should be the right of every individual irrespective of caste, creed, nationality or color.
To free Medicine from the stigma of Commercialization: The act of healing should be restored to its pristine sanctity, which can only be done when it ceases to be a commodity bought and sold in the market.
Human Values in Medical Care: The human agents of delivery system of health care, be they Health Administrators, Doctors, Nurses or Technicians, should be perfectly human in thought, word and deed. They should demonstrate the five Human Values. Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and non-violence in every act of theirs.
