Lairam Christian Medical Center

Lairam Christian Medical Centre is one of the most important project of the Lairam Jesus Christ Baptist Church. It was first initiated by the Women’s Fellowship of the Church. On September 19, 2001 it was inaugurated by the then Governor of Mizoram Shri Amolak Rattan Kholi. Within a few years, the building could no longer accommodate the rising need of the people. However, the church do not have the facility to construct another building, even though the cry of the people rises everyday. Due to this, the hospital rented a private building (BLOCK-II) next to the existing one. The BLOCK-II of the hospital was inaugurated in September 5, 2009 by Mr. H. Zothangliana, parliamentary Secretary, Government of Mizoram.

Lairam Christian Medical Centre has a good working partnership with the Mizoram State Aids Control Society, the National Rural Health Mission and the Presbyterian Hospital, Durtlang, Aizawl. Last year, the hospital also initiated the ‘Community Health services Programme’. This programme includes giving vaccines to children, antenatal clinic and trainings on family welfare.

Recently, the Rural Health Development Project funded by the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering through the Baptist World Alliance was initiated whereby Health Workers are placed in villages (Bungtlang S, Vawnbuk, Siachangkawn, Lungtian) and Pharmacies are opened, so as to give medical aid to the people and provide medicines at a very minimal price.
