Meet Dr Rani Bang And Dr Abhay Bang, Pioneers Of Maternal And Child Health Among Tribal Communities


Active member
Meet Dr. Rani Bang and Dr. Abhay Bang, who are known for their work in providing healthcare in the tribal belt of Gadchiroli, Maharashtra and for transforming the way India tackles high infant mortality and reproductive health in rural areas


In 1986, Dr Rani Bang and Dr Abhay Bang decided to return to India after completing their master's degree in public health in the USA at Johns Hopkins University. The couple, who could have gone to practise medicine anywhere in the world, chose to work in the rural and tribal belt of Gadchiroli, Maharashtra which is one of the most impoverished districts of India.

They founded the Society for Education, Action and Research in Community Health (SEARCH) and transformed the way India tackles high infant mortality and reproductive health in rural areas.
