Swasti (Wellbeing in Sanskrit) is a global public health organisation committed to adding 100 million ‘wellthy days’ for Vulnerable Communities. Our mission is to upgrade the discourse from health to wellbeing and bring the missing pieces in wellbeing together (social, behavioural, management and technology) around the technical/medical aspects, with a strong focus on Health Systems Strengthening for equity and Community systems strengthening. Swasti is a registered not for profit organisation and part of the Catalyst Group of institutions, having worked across 25 countries in South Asia, South East Asia and parts of East Africa.
In 2002, Catalyst Management Services (CMS) set up a not-for-profit organisation, Catalyst Development Initiatives (CDI), to incubate ideas in development. Swasti was one such idea. Over the next two years, CDI provided institutional framework and guidance to grow Swasti until it could operate independently. Swasti was registered as a not-for-profit society on 15 May 2004.
Over the years, our work has fuelled impact by promoting healthcare access thereby contributing to poverty alleviation, directly reaching over 400,000 people through our various initiatives. We have supported governments, donors and development partners to design solutions in public health.
A new beginning
Swasti is the Health Catalyst that Strives for 100 million ‘well’thy days for Vulnerable Communities.
Health inequity affects vulnerable communities disparately across the World. Its persistent nature makes it the World’s most challenging development problem
We at Swasti believe people must be at the centre of health systems for it to effectively work for the poor.
To add “well” thy days to the lives of the World’s poor by 2030, our Glocal multi-disciplinary team co-designs demonstrable and scalable solution models in partnership with communities on the ground and influences policies nationally and internationally.
We Care. Innovate. Demonstrate and Transform to a time when Wellness Becomes “Real” For Vulnerable Communities
