Though there are numerous addressable areas where there are cultural prejudices and a lack of equity, social justice, awareness and affordability for basic rights in our society, the Company have identified the following areas for the well-being of people, providing employment potential to them and preserving environment as below:
Triveni Turbines Preventive Health Programme (Triveni Turbines PHP) for Females
The Company identified a project as part of its CSR plan which focused on preventing diseases, such as osteoporosis, breast cancer, cancer of the cervix & ovary, anaemia of various types and promoting healthcare in women, especially of the lower socio-economic strata. Under this project, the Company provided free investigations and medical advice/consultation to women.

Nearly 1,32,000 women in India suffer from Cervical Cancer and nearly 74,000 of these die each year but this can be easily prevented through vaccination given at an appropriate age.
New Born Screening Programme
New born babies, especially from economically weaker section of the society, were screened under New Born Screening (NBS) Programme for Thyroid profile, CAH, G6PD, Hearing test. In India, two major disorders are being detected through New Born Screening. Congenital Hypothyroidism (CH) is being found in 2 out of 1000 babies in India. Next to that, G6PD deficiency is more common among the population of India. They constitute 8.6% of India’s total population. NBS is done to find out if a baby has a higher risk for having a disorder for which early treatment or management can prevent intellectual disability, physical disability or even death. By treating these conditions, damages like mental retardation, thyroid issues, autism and sudden death can be reversed.
