HERD Foundation is organizing a Medical Health Camp at Village Nagardhan near Ramtek for the benefit of nearly 1500 to 2000 people living in and around the village. The Camp of June 23, 2014 will be working from 4 pm to 9 pm and will offer the usual team of medical practitioners to provide healthcare services to people suffering from physical ailments in the area. The team comprising of eight departments from NKPS Institute Medical Sciences will allow the rural populace to avail of all kinds of healthcare investigations, prescriptions and follow up through referrals.
An important feature of our healthcare initiatives is that we organize these health camps especially in remote rural settings for people who do not have access to medical services. This is part of HERD Foundation’s commitment towards a healthy rural citizenry. We had recently organized one such camp at village Kachurvahi that had drawn a huge footfall in the region. This clearly showed us that the need for such health camps is genuinely required.
HERD Foundation is adept at setting the stage for delivery of health care in rural areas. We derive the complete cooperation of the villagers who duly assist us as best as they can in making the arrangements for such camps. On our part we provide a comprehensive health package to impart health education and sensitize communities on various preventive and promotive health care issues. These include quick tips on nutrition and hygiene.
Our medical camps witness the participation of huge numbers of people including women, children and the elderly. Besides seasonal ailments we cater to the conditions of chronic patients and other debilitating diseases. Specialists in the team integrate referrals as part of our healthcare programme. Regular health camps focus on eye care, dental care, worm infestation, skin infections and physiotherapy as well. HERD Foundation camps aim to create awareness, diagnosis and treatment of health conditions.
