Patient first

Patient first is a non profit organisation created to provide legal assistance to the rural poor who are victims of medical negligence in the public hospitals and to strengthen the work of the health standards office in demanding accountability in the public hospitals where the customer care problems are unacceptably high. To achieve our mission, we undertake the following activities:
(1) Organise legal assistance for the rural poor with injuries resulting from negligent surgical errors.
(2) Train and empower the CSOs in the rural areas to offer paralegal advice to the victims of medical negligence.
(3) Monitor the hospitals and create reports, called barometer on hospital problems, that the health standards office and other oversight organs can use to demand accountability in the hospitals where the customer care problems are unacceptably high.
