Sun Pharmaceutical Industries launched a special initiative ‘Sunkalp’ for the welfare of doctors, their families and the community. The company stated that doctors have been working relentlessly through the pandemic putting their lives at risk to safeguard society.
To recognise and care for their health & well-being, on the occasion of National Doctors’ Day, Sun Pharma announces the launch of multifaceted initiatives under Sunkalp. These initiatives will be rolled out in a phased manner.
- Mental health support for doctors & their families
- Webinars for doctors on mental health by experts
- Donation of Covid-19 medicines (phase 2)
- Post Doctorate educational sponsorship (phase 2)
- Educational aid for children of doctors who lost their lives to Covid-19 (phase 2)
Sun Pharma said that for more than a year, doctors have been fighting the pandemic to save lives. Long stressful working hours, witnessing casualties and maintaining distance from loved ones have become normal for them. These factors can result in stress & exhaustion not only for them but also for their families. To help them cope with the same, Sun Pharma has partnered with Mann Talks to provide doctors and their families with confidential emotional and psychological care by trained mental health professionals. Further, to educate doctors on mental health issues & enable them to take better self-care, multiple webinars will be held by experts.
To pay homage to doctors who have lost their lives to Covid-19, Sun Pharma is setting up an Education Fund for their children. The company will provide educational grants to the affected families through this fund.
