ISRF (Indo-Swedish Rheumatology Foundation)

The Indo-Swedish Rheumatology Foundation (ISRF) is an initiative by an association of physicians to bridge the gap between the persons suffering from rheumatologic diseases in the developing world and the advanced level of knowledge, practice and technology in the developed world. The foundation also endeavors to add to the body of knowledge and practice on this debilitating disease.

The VISION is to make health available even to the poorest. 


The MISSION is to enhance the quality of life for the thousands suffering from both acute and chronic rheumatological diseases in eastern Indian states specially in  Odisha and to optimize preventive health care through patient education.

The OBJECTIVES are to work for research & development, clinical work and information-education-communication (IEC) in the fields of rheumatology and pediatrics associated with clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues, vasculitis, connective tissues disorders and disorders of the autoimmune system. Patient's care is of utter importance.

Our rheumatologists and other healthcare professionals at the hospital will provide the highest level of care in all the areas of autoimmune inflammatory conditions.

We will also provide instructions for self-care and education from physio-therapists.

Our clinical works involve Adult Arthritis care, Children Arthritis ( JIA) care and managements, and Patients’ Society.

ISRF will carry out research on rheumatology and try to find causal factors for arthritis. It also will collabarate with institutions like Indian Institute for Technology and Fakir Mohan University.

A few areas identified for immediate research are Epidemiological study of Rheumatoid Arthritis amongst Eastern Indian population, Study of Children Arthritis (JIA) in Eastern India and Fluorosis and Arsenic related studies.

ISRF will explore the possibility of offering knowledge products and expertise to enrich Education in MBBS training and PG training in collaboration with IRA (Indian Rheumatology Association) and Swedish Rheumatology Society (SRS).

ISRF will also offer Patient Education Programs for Arthritis.

We are also offering a Center for Clinical Trials of certain drugs in collaboration with Pharma-industries, Research & Development Organisations, Government and Non Government Organisations in India and abroad in different phases.
