TPCDT recognizes that Health is a state of physical, social and mental well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

TPCDT participates in providing and maintaining affordable, integrated and quality health-care facilities to the communities.

The activities rolled out under the Health theme include the following:

TPCDT's Mobile Medical Units are running at almost all locations to provide healthcare facilities at the doorstep. Special Health Camps are also organized in partnership with private and Government hospitals like Anaemia Detection Camp, Eye Care Camp, Cancer Detection Camp, Orthopaedic Camp, Dental Care Camp, Gynaecology Camp, etc. We also work in collaboration with Government Health Centres to provide better health accessibility to the needy and poor people.

Apart from regular Health Camps several other voluntary Blood Donation Camps are also organized from time to time at various locations. In these initiative employees, contract workmen and associates voluntarily donate their blood and experience the "Joy of Giving".

IEC (Information Education Communication) plays an important role in changing people's attitude and sustain the change in their health seeking behaviour.

TPCDT organizes Special Training and Awareness Programs in schools and communities to ensure and inculcate good health practices amongst community people. IEC programs like Street Plays, dissemination of information through Posters, Puppet Shows, Hand Wash Training Programs in Schools, and Special Talks by specialized doctors have been conducted.
