Saans: Breath of life

The SAANS foundation was established by Dr Partha Pratim Bose. ‘SAANS’ meaning ‘breath of life’, is a result of Bose’s efforts in the direction of providing better quality of life to individuals seeking aid and his lifelong commitment to his profession. His mission statement stemming from his extreme concern for human misery, is to eliminate suffering and death due to lung ailments primarily bronchial asthma, through education, advocacy, community outreach and research. The common disorders treated here are respiratory disorders like allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, bronchial asthma, smoker’s asthma (COPD), pneumonia, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, lung fibrosis & pleural diseases. Stress, life style and Sleep disorders are also treated here. 

Bose’s interest in this field of respiratory disorders led him to start the Saans Foundation– a respiratory organisation actively involved in community outreach, professional training and research activities in India. ‘Saksham’ – an initiative of Saans is a multipurpose capacity building forum to provide health worker and home attendant courses. Saksham aspires to train suitable youth from the lower economic strata of society as multi-purpose health care workers in the health and disaster management industry. 

These trained health workers are working as a bridging gap as Allied Health professionals in different health care delivery system. Saans care is incomplete without its one to one rehab program Samarth, which is a rehabilitation center for patients with chronic diseases. Saans believes gateway to total fitness is journey from physical, mental, emotional, environment and social to spiritual wellness in nutshell, a total wellness experience. The rehab attempts to reduce symptoms and make individuals more functional.

Saans takes proactive initiatives to cater to old patients through its home care services which provides 24X7 patient care services. Bose has received many awards. He has written many books and published articles.
