AMRITA PATEL CENTRE FOR PUBLIC HEALTH (APCPH)

Amrita Patel Centre for Public Health is a venture to pay tributes to our former Chairman, Dr. Amrita Patel. Dr. Patel was the first lady executive of Amul, then the first woman Managing Director, and finally the Chairman of the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB). Her contribution to the dairy industry is a tale of trials and triumphs. She is also a passionate community health professional deeply concerned about the health of the rural poor. Her entire life has been spent in the service of the less privileged and empowering them, especially the women of India. All the organizations she has served have a main goal: improving the health, income, and welfare of India’s rural poor.

 

A committed professional, a visionary, a dedicated environmentalist, and a prudent administrator with non-compromising ethics, she was deservedly conferred with the 'Padmabhushan' by the Government of India for her contribution to the Indian Dairy industry and animal husbandry, and the 'Indira Gandhi Paryavaran Puraskar' by the Ministry of Environment & Forests for her significant contribution to the field of environment. She has been on the list of the top Businesswomen of the year (listed by Business Today) consistently for five years and topped the list in 2008. She was conferred with the prestigious Mahindra Samriddhi India Agri Lifetime Achievement Award - the Krishi Shiromani Samman - at a glittering function in Delhi on March 5, 2016.

 

The Centre is envisioned to become a destination of learning and capacity building for public health professionals of all cadres.
