About Heart Care Foundation of India
Initiated in 1986, the Heart Care Foundation of India is a leading National NGO working in the field of disease prevention and management. The NGO uses consumer-based entertainment modules to impart health education and increase awareness about preventive health amongst people.
A leading example of this is the Perfect Health Mela, an annual event started in 1993 that is attended by over 2-3 lakh people each year. The Mela showcases activities across categories such as health education seminars and checkups, entertainment programmes, lifestyle exhibitions, lectures, workshops and competitions.
