Governing body of Focus High School

Jaferia Institute of Social Medicine (JISM) is a registered society that works in the health and education sectors of Hyderabad. In addition to Focus High School, JISM manages Jaferia Hospital, a 50-bed hospital that was started 10 years ago and is located in Darushifa. The hospital caters to all sections of society and is equipped with an emergency room, ICU and operation theatre facilities. Patients pay 25-35% of what corporate hospitals in the area charge for surgeries and in-patient care reducing the financial burden on families. For those unable to pay, the hospital arranges funds so that no deserving person is denied access to treatment.

JISM is made up of people accomplished in diverse fields that range from IT, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals and Education. A brief description and current occupation of JISM board members are given below.
