India’s lifeline on wheels?

The Lifeline Express is India’s first hospital train. It has been in service for over 23 years. Travelling across various cities, it aims to provide mobile medical aid – especially to those residing in rural areas with little access to healthcare services.

Established in 1991 by Impact India Foundation in partnership with the Indian Railways, it is equipped with state-of-the art technology. Countless surgeries have been successfully performed in its carriages.

According to Impact India, the Lifeline Express has been an inspiration for similar projects in Central Africa and China, as well as river boat hospitals in Cambodia and Bangladesh.

Will this revolutionize access to healthcare services in remote areas?
