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 Medical Camps to reaches out to different sects of people.

A major component of a medical camp is screening activities for diabetes, 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.

As a part of camp Our Medical professionals provide health education in an effort to prevent communicable diseases and for the early detection of common disorders such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and other disorders.

We are also extending our outreach camp intervention programme towards meeting the growing need of medical services of the poor and remote Rural population.
