National Health Mission (NHM) of Uttarakhand signed an MoU with Mission Smile on 31.10.2019. The terms of this MoU states that NHM will henceforth refer all cleft patients to our outreach centre in AIIMS, Rishikesh. NHM will identify the patients at the ground level through their RBSK (Rashtriya Bal Swathya Karyakram) teams and refer them to our outreach centre in Rishikesh.
