Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Manmangalam, Karur

Total Budget: $44,500

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Karur District, Manmangalam Taluk have many small villages around and no primary health centers in villages. For any health needs the residents need to travel down atleast about 10 Kms to meet doctor and to get some medical assistance. For specialty treatments and multiple tests, they need to travel about 20 to 40 Kms. Most of the villagers are farmers and labors in textile industry. They ignore their symptoms in health and only when they have serious illness they travel to hospital to diagnose.

The Mobile clinic can go to villages at regular intervals, so that residents can meet doctors and diagnose for basic health issues. This mobile clinic will also create awareness on diseases and prevention methods. The below diseases are commonly exists among village community. Heart Diseases, Kidney Diseases, Hypertension, Diabetic, Diarrhoeal Diseases, Eye, Dental & Bone related diseases, ENT, Anemia, Flu (Malaria, Typhoid, Filaria, Dengue, Dengue Hemorrhagic, Chikungunya etc), Hepatitis, Japanese Encephalitis (JE), Tuberculosis.

Most of the villagers are agri workers. Lack of awareness and less health care, lead to serious issues and many casualties. The vehicle will have basic equipment to screen heart diseases, kidney diseases, hypertension, Diabetic etc. The vehicle will also have equipment to attend emergency situations due to heart & hypertension diseases. Qualified Doctors (MBBS, MS, MD degree holders) along with Qualified Nursing Staffs(Bachelor of Nursing) will go to specified villages in a specified time. The vehicle will have audio & video systems to give awareness about life style and to prevent common diseases. The doctors will examine patients and give treatment. Incase if further treatment required then the patient will be advised to go to specialty hospitals.

This project will address the need of primary health care for residents in village.
