Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”)
We recognize our responsibilities to the communities. We have conducted various corporate social responsibility activities in the past few years. These include the Nargis Rehabilitation Program, which involved community screening and cataract operations for the underprivileged. We allocate 36 beds at our hospital to those at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid. We discount 30% to 70% of professional fees to deliver care to the lower socio-economic segment of the population.
We also provide health education programs, focusing primarily on reducing infant mortality rate and incidence of measles, mumps and rubella.
We provide bi-monthly community segment targeted screening, education and/or intervention clinics for diabetes, cataracts, congenital morbidity, breast cancer, among others. We have set mobile consultation clinics in wider catchment areas such as Ayeyarwaddy delta region. As part of our corporate social responsibility, we have allocated 2% of net profit from our healthcare business towards the above programs. It is binding for us to ensure that the CSR program is sustainable and far reaching.
