By ensuring access to such services for the needy and the deprived in the remote areas, the Lifeline Express not only renders a much needed service but also raises the efficiency level of the existing local government and voluntary health infrastructure. It also ensures that the local bodies of the area, who are involved in all aspects of the programme, provide follow-up services after the Lifeline Express has departed.

It leaves behind much greater awareness and a better motivated administration for the disabled. At the macro level too, the Lifeline Express creates awareness and motivation for the cause of the disabled, across a wide cross section to include Government, business houses, voluntary organisations and individual volunteers .

The extensive media interest which the Lifeline Express invariably generates also aids this process and consequently, the impact is beyond the medical services provided by each individual Lifeline Express project.
