Wipro CEO Mr Thierry Delaporte, and members of the global senior management team at Wipro, visited the Kudlu Gate slum on May 8, a site at which KHPT is developing an Urban Comprehensive Primary Health Care (CPHC) model. The Wipro Cares-funded intervention at Singasandra Urban Primary Health Centre, aims to create a comprehensive service package for pregnant, lactating mothers and children (below 5 years) among identified vulnerable groups, including the urban poor, migrants, and persons with pre-existing health conditions.
The KHPT team spoke about the organization’s history, vision, principles and initiatives to ensure communities, especially the most vulnerable, are empowered to lead a life of quality health and well-being. The team facilitated interactions with frontline health workers of the area to understand their motivations and daily challenges. The Wipro team also had conversations with mothers about their experiences with accessing healthcare during their pregnancies. Three groups of children from the slum shared with the visitors, through art, what they loved and did not like about their community, and their ambitions of improving their surroundings. The Wipro team concluded their visit with a walk through the Kudlu Gate slum blocks to understand the daily challenges of life in the slum.
