The Healthcare team was a wing formed under IMSSA in the year 2013, to provide the Indian Muslim Society healthcare advice that is more specific to them. With studies that has proven the high risk rate to diseases that the Indian Muslim have been exposed to, the primary aim has been to create awareness amongst the Society.
As the Indian Muslim Society generally does not engage in external health awareness activities due to multiple reasons such as medium of language used being in English and the high cost, the team aimed to provide activities that were conducted in Tamil language and at no cost. This initiative has certainly been well received by the Indian Muslim Society.
IMSSA Healthcare aims to continuously play a part in practical prevention of diseases.

IMSSA Healthcare was formed in year 2013 by a group of healthcare members in IMSSA. The team decided to kick-off its healthcare initiatives to create awareness to the Indian Muslim Society about diseases by conducting monthly health talks by Registered Nurses.
After garnering great support from majority of the female Indian Muslim participants, IMSSA Healthcare decided to branch out into other activities that focused on diseases prevention. Therefore, the team has conducted practical lessons on exercises and healthy cooking.
