year 2004 in the memory of Dr. K. S. Sanjivi, the doyen of Community Health
Care in Chennai and founder of the Voluntary Health Services, Taramani,
Chennai. The award recognizes and honors doctors and institutions that
exemplify Dr.Sanjivi's ideal of dedication to the practice of medicine as a
service vocation and have a track record of non-commercial services to the

- Recognise and reward doctors who serve the sick and the suffering
beyond the call of duty
- Motivate young doctors to imbibe the spirit of service
- Create a pool of doctors that NGOs can approach in times of need

So far 45 doctors and 10 institutions have been honoured with this award.
