Kailakuri healthcare project's philosophy is "health services provided for the poor, by the poor". Kailakuri is managed and operated by the poor. The project was founded and directed by New Zealander Dr Edric Baker, until he passed away on 1st September 2015. The project has approximately 80 staff members, many of whom Dr Baker trained over a number of years, enabling the project to continue running smoothly after his death. All staff take part in weekly training sessions, run by the senior paramedics. There are two-monthly rotating internee doctors from Gonoshashtaya Kendra Medical College and Hospital. In early 2018 the project will be joined by Jason and Merindy Morgensen, doctor's from the the US.
