Improved Health Status

FXB India Suraksha recognizes that good health is a fundamental human right and a precondition for social development. A paramount objective of all FXBIS programmes is to address health vulnerabilities by improving access to quality health services, clean water and sanitation facilities within its intervention geographies.
