Our Story

Medindia has been a pioneer in many ways and was one of the earliest health websites to be launched from India. Medindia was founded by Dr. Sunil Shroff, Arun Shroff and Sanjay Shroff - three brothers and passionate entrepreneurs who combined their diverse skills and experience in medicine, technology and business. Medindia was conceived originally with the social mission of educating consumers about health and providing physicians and professionals with the tools to leverage technology and the internet to improve healthcare. In order to further this mission, Medindia.net was launched as a website in 2001, and incorporated as a business in 2004, and has grown steadily ever since its inception.

In addition to the founders, Medindia is supported by a team of a highly qualified and experienced team of doctors, healthcare professionals, content researchers, writers, editors, designers, developers and analysts. Medindia is privately owned and operated by Medindia4u.com Pvt. Ltd. - with headquarters in Chennai, India and offices in USA and UK.

Medindia’s Editorial Policy

Purpose: At MedIndia, we believe that our readers deserve accurate, authentic, trustworthy, compassionate and validated health information. Whether you're visiting us out of pure curiosity or urgently seeking information in the middle of the night; our commitment remains unwavering: to empower you with knowledge for a healthier life.

1. Our Core Values

Empathy: Health matters are generally sensitive, and we handle them with utmost care. We use person-centered, empathetic language, embracing the individual over conditions. We prioritize what you value and speak in a way that resonates with you.

Respect for Diversity: We understand the importance of language, especially in healthcare. We simplify all medical terms as far as we can and occasionally also mention the actual term. While we lean towards person-first language, we're also mindful of groups that prefer identity-first language. In all our content, we hope you sense our positive intent.

Continuous Learning: Health information keeps evolving. We review our editorial policies yearly and consistently update our content to reflect the latest, most accurate information.
