The Tata group's efforts in the healthcare sector span the spectrum — from tackling malaria and improving maternal and neonatal health, to constantly evolving cancer care in the country. Healthcare efforts are especially concentrated in rural areas and focused on marginalised communities with limited or no access to healthcare. 

Perhaps the Group's most ambitious project is the National Cancer Grid, a network of 114 cancer centres, research institutes, patient advocacy groups and charitable organisations, set up by the Indian government. Tata Trusts is assisting in expanding the reach and scope of the Grid to ensure standard treatment and research protocols across India.
