Makunda hospital is located in a tribal populated area at the junction of three northeast states - Assam, Mizoram and Tripura. The origin of the Makunda Christian Leprosy & General Hospital can be traced back to 1935 when it was started as a leprosy colony in 1000 acres of land by Baptist Mid-Missions USA. General Medical Work started in the late 1950s after Dr. Gene Burrows joined. EHA took it over in 1992. The 132 beds hospital maintained its poor friendly focus, with the emphasis on minimal investigation, minimal treatment and low charges for patients. Apart from the high quality medical care provided to the people in the neighboring communities, the hospital also offers training programs for health nprofessionals and a school for the children from the communities around. Farming, outreach (branch hospital), spiritual & mission nurture are other focus areas.
