It is also a matter of great pleasure and honor for OVHA and its member Organisations for their commitment and contribution in the field of community health and development. Member organisations are proud to be a part of the Oldest & Largest network of voluntary organisations working in the field of health in Odisha.

But we all as a committed group will carry forward our mission to see a better & just society where all have access to health facilities in and around their habitat. OVHA as an association is committed to make health a reality. To achieve this goal the association has not left any stone unturned. Starting from awareness generation, capacity building of service providers and distribution of IEC materials at all levels by direct intervention or facilitate the member organisations to carry out the activities.

Accountability and transparency have always been the guiding principles at OVHA.
Our initiation is a tiny drop of water in the ocean of development. But we try to leave our imprint through our activities, which can be implemented and replicated elsewhere. We were working, are working and will be working to achieve our predefined goal. We share with you the real impact your support made in the lives of people across the state.
