PNMF, a non-profit organization established in 2003 and a founding trustee of a polytechnic institute (college), Pratiman-Neema Health Institute (PNMHI), uses three platforms—–academics, research, and community engagement, to bring together people and institutions locally, nationally and internationally, to work on ideas that are creative, long-lasting and sustainable. Using the interdisciplinary approach that combines natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, PNMF aims to use these platforms to produce skilled manpower, conduct problem-driven research, and engage in evidence-based solutions that help improve the well-being of the communities.
The PNMF’s vision is to be a center of excellence engaged in producing manpower and ideas that are impactful in reshaping the public policy debates and deliberations.
The PNMF’s mission is to provide a holistic platform for engagements that give students, researchers, policy makers, and community leaders a competitive edge in their deliberation, analysis, and understanding of the complex, interdependent and knowledge-based society. With a focus on poverty, health, education, and the environment, the evidence-based solutions and policies are directed to enhance the well-being of those who are underserved, underprivileged, and underrepresented.
As an umbrella organization, the PNMF’s goal is to develop three cutting edge platforms – academic college, research centers, and community outreach programs. Using the interdisciplinary approach that combines natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, PNMF aims to use these platforms to produce skilled manpower, conduct problem-driven research, and perform important community projects.
