  • Non availability of medical services in rural areas was the main concern

  • Background:

    What started as a modest health service providing "Sane Guruji Arogya Kendra" through the initiation of 5 medical graduates, Dr. Dada Gujar being the prominent amongst them. Today MAM has become an integral part of all the developmental activities in and around Hadapsar. This was small & humble beginning named " Maharashtra Arogya Mandal", established as a Charitable Public Trust on the 10th death anniversary of Sane Guruji (11th June 1960).


    The work that started with a small OPD, has now acquired a multifarious character. Even the area of operation that was restricted to 9 villages around Hadapsar increased, beyond the limits to villages of 2nd phase and the Bhimashankar Tribal Development Project. It was not the part of expansion programme but the felt need that prompted MAM to expand. Such expansion was not allowed to affect the quality of the work; discipline for excellence was attempted and achieved.


    MAM was involved in health services, preventive medicine, but instead of restricting to these areas, it also realized the need to work in support areas like waste water, sewage disposal and sanitation, school children health monitoring and nutrition. The multifarious activities included improving the communications by building approach/ interconnecting roads, construction and running of schools, development of water resources by construction of small percolation dams and many more. MAM today is involved in three main sectors Health, Education, Tribal/Rural Development.
