KLE Society will set up clinics and hospitals in various parts of Belagavi to provide door-to-door health care services. “We have already opened four centres in the city. There will be more,” Prabhakar Kore, KLE Society chairman, said in Belagavi. He was speaking after opening a hospital in Ujwal Nagar.

He said that social reform was possible only through education and healthcare. “We are trying to provide easy access to healthcare, by putting up a network of hospitals,” he said.
