Charitable Health Care

Men-Tsee-Khang (Tibetan Medical & Astro. Institute of H.H. the Dalai Lama) was set up in 1961 in exile in India and since then it has strived to preserve its precious knowledge of Healing (Sowa Rigpa) and contribute to the public health care.  The medicines are charged minimally so that every one can afford the treatment. 

In addition, the institute has taken steps to offer charity and subsidized services in order to provide better health care among the Tibetan refugee community and several villages in India.
