About the Indian Head Injury Foundation:
Founded in February 2007, the IHIF mission is to build a comprehensive system in India for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury, and to provide neuro-rehabilitation to such patients. At a time when concerns for road safety in India are at a peak, the work of Indian Head Injury Foundation is critical. According to a WHO report, India has the highest number of road deaths in the world (1,05,725 in 4,00,000 accidents). This gives India the dubious distinction of being the ‘head injury capital of the world’. With donations for participation in the retreat (ranging from 10-15 Lakh Rupees, depending on the residential package selected), going to Indian Head Injury Foundation, the Jodhpur One World Retreat is a critical event raising awareness and financial support for a critical issue in India.
