Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit said that addressing this multidimensional challenge requires a solution that combines humane intent, progressive policies, and equitable practices. Only when the body is free from diseases and an individual can contribute to the socio-economic growth of the nation, the nation prospers. To accelerate progress towards prosperity, we bring to the world an initiative that seeks to provide society a platform that delivers freedom from ill-health.

According to a GNRC Official, over 1 billion individuals globally lack access to health care services. Bridging this gap through appropriate health care services will result in healthier populations and a robust economy. Fulfilling this pressing need requires a multi-dimensional effort encompassing educating various sections of society, continuous advocacy, concerted actions and societal collaboration. An initiative to pursue this multi-dimensional objective, named as Affordable Health Mission has been launched by GNRC founder Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah.
Besides this, a biography of Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah, titled Hope Dawns in the East was also launched by Governor Purohit and Anil Sinha, Former Regional Head of International Finance Corporation (IFC) – World Bank Group’s Advisory Business in South Asia during the program.
Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah, Founder, Affordable Health Mission and Chairman cum Managing Director, GNRC, said that the primary cause of an alarming number of health conditions is a lack of persuasive communication about healthy living and the role of preventive health care and early intervention in it. Affordable Health Mission is a platform to take this message of healthy living to the masses, and thereby serve the cause of society-building and nation-building.
