For improving the lives of people in Delhi slums and providing them free-of-cost medical care services Plan Care Foundation initiated its mobile Health Camp programme,
The programme was intended to deliver medical services at the doorsteps of the underprivileged sections of the society. Under the programme, specific lab tests are conducted whenever required so that people can be given disease-specific treatment. For sustainability of the project, community is involved so that they can adopt healthy practices.
Through this initiative Plan Care Foundation brings primary healthcare services at the doorstep of impoverished families and children living in these areas. A team of Doctor, Nurse, Pharmacist and Lab Technician are present for medical consultation, diagnosis, lab tests and medicine distribution. There is also a Community Mobilizer on board who spreads awareness on basic healthcare, hygiene and nutrition through group discussions, workshops, streets plays and other IEC activities. Special sessions are arranged to educate pregnant and lactating women on healthy diet, maternal and infant nutrition, ANC/PNC, breastfeeding, and immunization. Referral services are also offered to bridge the gap between the community and the government.
