Founded in February 2007 by His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur, the Indian Head Injury Foundation was the outcome of a father’s concern for his injured son. After Maharaja Gaj Singh’s son Yuvraj Shivraj Singh suffered a serious head injury during a polo match, the family was subject to countless medical procedures, numerous remedial opinions and many tough decisions.
Seeing the state of India’s social and medical response to head injury accidents and brain trauma, the Maharaja started on a mission to build a comprehensive system for the head injury prevention through the education of road users, diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain and spinal injury, and to provide physical and neurological rehabilitation to the victims of such unfortunate incidents.
IHIF cater for the under-privileged sections of India's society after suffering life-changing injuries to the brain. They have rehabilitation centres in Jodhpur, Delhi ad more recently in Patna.
