Prof. Sabari Ghosal has an illustrious career in research and academics with 25 international publications, five patents, books and thousands of admiring students in her credentials. She has worked at National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi; DRDO (DIPAS) and Amity University, Noida for a total period of 26 years. She successfully completed few government sponsored projects on Leishmaniasis (kala-zar) and Tuberculosis with promising results and leads. Beside academics, she took the lead role as convener and coordinator of the student body at the University. During her tenure she realized that each student faces two common syndromes a) challenge to do excel in life and b) peer’s pressure and identity crisis. To revive self-esteem and positivity among students she organized various activities like clean Yamuna drive, campaigning against smoking and drug abuse, donation drive for natural calamities and maintenance of traffic rule at regular intervals. These activities provided a new dimension of sharing and caring, team work and a sense of responsibility amongst them. During this period Prof. Ghosal realized her true passion and inner strength of doing some benevolent work for a larger cause of the society. So she left the job in February, 2020 and that was the starting point of Sehat Foundation.
She realized that low public investment in preventive healthcare is one of the key reasons behind the poor health of the average Indian. Flexible and indigenous innovation and to cater more with less resources can only help a complex and resource-constrained country like India. By improving healthcare delivery with the help of technology can only achieve a difference on a sustainable basis.The 1st step forward toward this vision is the Sehat Clinic at Madlauda village of Panipat district of Haryana. Within a short period of the birth of Sehat Foundation, she arranged free checkup facility for the police personnel at Panipat on their request. Also, she is deeply engaged in continuous research to build a bridge between doctors and rural population in capacity building, spreading awareness and providing continuous care for four diseases including arthritis, respiratory illness, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
