Two trains fulfill the purpose of Lifeline Express. Every train is particularly planned with air-conditioned coaches, numerous patient wards, power generators, pantry car, one surgical operation theatre along with three operating tables, a sterilizing room and store-room for medical needs and lodging for medical staff. The train is not less than a small hospital with all the necessary amenities on board to treat the patience.
The train is good for those people who stay in remote areas as this train moves through different remote parts of the country which lacks appropriate medical facilities. Not only that this train also operates in disaster and natural calamity affected areas helping the needier. The train hospital as well carries with a mission to defeat “avoidable disabilities” together with some forms of deafness, blindness physical handicaps and more. The train includes staff of neurosurgeons, dentists, anesthetists and other medical specialists to help the patience suffering from a range of sickness.
Beside India the similar Lifeline Express operates in Bangladesh, China, Zimbabwe and in more countries.
