Medical Camp Intervention:
In remote villages people are unaware of their health status and they
are ignorant about it. To overcome this, We have initiated Free Community

hypertension, and heart problems followed by consultations. Consultations,
medicines and treatment are provided free to the patients presenting the
various common complaints such as Fever, Cough, Skin Problems, Bronchitis,
Asthma, Headache, Arthritis, Peptic Ulcer etc. At each location about
300- 400 patients attend and access our camp services. Those in need of
further treatment are referred to the base hospital. The further treatments
are provided at the special concession for the camp beneficiaries.
