Doctors For You and Covid 19 Response So Far:

Established in 2007, Doctors for You (DFY) is the largest network of doctors, medical students and concerned citizens in India. They work with underserved communities, providing efficient, effective and equitable distribution of health care for everyone.

  • They started the first outsourced model of Covid Care Centre for mild & moderate cases in association with MMRDA in Mumbai. They replicated it in Delhi in association with LNJP hospital.
  • DFY converted the assigned CWG (Commonwealth Games) to a 500+ bed makeshift hospital within a record time of 6 days in association with LBS hospital. (Link to view: https://youtu.be/sv4MPm8Bpj0)
  • DFY is presently operating & managing more than 2500 beds across Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Bihar, U.P., and Andhra Pradesh with a large group of medical and nursing staff
  • Under the ‘Protect the Protectors’ Program, DFY is providing PPE Kits, Masks, Face Shields, Gloves and Covid-19 special training to 100+ hospitals across India.
  • DFY has also started vaccination services for COVID-19 in all major cities in India.
  • The vision of DFY is to provide affordable & quality medical relief, sustainable & robust healthcare services, capacity building & risk reduction activities in crisis or otherwise.
  • DFY is also engaging with the group of engineers, technocrats, and industrialists to solve the critical devices, tools & infrastructure associated with various segments of Covid-19 mitigation; including testing, vaccination, oxygen generator, information platforms, treatment, medicine, dead body management etc.
DFY has boosted the hiring of doctors and nursing staff and has already begun to procure goods and critical healthcare equipment in parallel with the fundraise. In the coming days, the focus will be on mobilising more medical professionals, procuring oxygen & related critical healthcare equipment, while building capacity for battling any future COVID resurgence.

The Need of the hour is to Mobilize Medical equipment and supplies on a war-footing
“We need ambulances, thermometers, masks, we need to hire staff, and so much more... there's so much left to do, and such limited time. China constructed, from the ground up, a 25,000sft hospital in just 8 days to battle the novel coronavirus. We have 2 weeks, and thankfully we already have a hospital as well. We just need the equipment and staff to turn it into a specialized COVID-19 Emergency Quarantine Hospital, ready to observe suspected cases, and treat confirmed cases. Our resources are extremely stretched, through our own efforts, and because we’ve been helping the government all over the country. We need your help to get this Emergency Hospital running, and we need the help now. Time is more critical than it has ever been. Donate as much as you can.” — Dr. Ravikant

A complete list of requirements needed by DFY:

Excess funds raised will be deployed by DFY towards opening more Covid Care Centres, increasing the number of beds, and extending much needed support to other COVID care centres. The DFY team is currently catering to 1100+ hospitals under the "Protect the Protectors" program and will divert the resources to hospitals that are in need of assistance.
