Bringing Healthcare to Those In Need

Our goal : Providing every person in India with the medical attention they need and deserve

Providing the Best in Medical Technology

Our principles : Do not compromise on the quality of healthcare of patients from any socio-economic class

Helping Students To Do Better

Our Plan : Help deserving students apply for, receive and finance their fellowship program abroad, which allows them to pay more attention on learning and less on stress.

Providing Access to Advanced Learning

Our Work: Our annual conferences allow Indian youth and doctors access to the most advanced surgical techniques and the latest surgical implants and instrumentations.


Developing countries like India have a vast population of people that need medical attention but cannot afford to have it. This causes an increase in their hardships which in turn affects their financial situation. The East-West MeRC Trust has a solution! We help patients get the treatment from world renowned experts in established tertiary care hospitals with cutting-edge instruments.

Our Collaboration with Doctors From Other Countries

Our Collaboration with doctors from the United States of America, Thailand, Japan and Brazil Allows Us to receive and spread information about the latest techniques and surgical instruments that are used abroad. We obtain these guidelines directly from the people who are designing these implants and therefore these can be a great boost for medical practitioners in India.



The East – West MeRC Trust not only helps patients but has a multi-pronged approach of helping doctors and students in the country. We not only help students receive fellowships in the best hospitals abroad, but also help them fund their stay as well as all other expenses associated with their course. However, these are not the only upcoming medical practitioners that are looked after by our organization.
Back at home, we host a yearly conference and invite the most experienced surgeons and the most advanced implant companies from all over the world to share their innovative ideas and teach them to our youth.
