The Community Health Department of St. Stephen’s Hospital (CHD-SSH) came into existence due to aftermaths of the emergency when the homeless and underprivileged of the society were relocated from Old Delhi to Sunder Nagari. To take care of the health needs of the poorest of the poor, the government invited hospitals to open primary care units to which St.Stephen’s Hospital in 1983 was one of the few who responded.
It is located about 16 kms away from the main hospital in a slum and resettlement colony in North East Delhi one of the most disadvantaged areas in the national capital.In this area there are pockets where two people cannot walk together in the streets with open sewers. CHD-SSH believes in the WHO definition of health: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely absence of disease or infirmity”.
