Abstract


The Haji Abdul Majid Memorial Hospital & Research Centre (HAMMH) has fulfilled a felt need of the society in the area around Hojai, a small town in Nagaon district of Assam. Inaugurated by Mother Teresa on September 16, 1995, the hospital has since its inception benefited over 1.5 million people. The biggest beneficiaries have been the pregnant women. Indeed, over the years, the HAMM Hospital has contributed significantly to bring down maternal and infant mortality in Nagaon district. Another
contribution of the hospital is that the poorest of the poor living in the remotest part of Assam are getting world class treatment, which nobody could have thought about a decade ago. For Haji Ajmal Ali, the HAMM Hospital marks just another milestone in his vision to create a society that is free from infant and maternal mortality, and where no one dies of untreatable ailments. This hospital mainly caters to the health problems of the rural population of Nagaon district in Assam.
