Gunis, traditional indigenous healers, have been treating common illnesses utilizing local medicinal plants in India for hundreds of years. After realizing the dangerous lack of access to healthcare in rural Rajasthan, JJVS has partnered with these healers to improve the health of people of all ages, genders, and castes.
In many ways, Gunis are exemplary healers. They treat their fellow villagers not to make money, as they charge less than $1 for most of their services, but to see them happy and healthy. As lifelong learners, many still receive trainings from JJVS and collaborate with other Gunis so as to provide the best care for their patients.
