Description

The rural countryside is witness to high infant and adult morality rate. Mostly, this can be attributed to poor delivery of Health Service in these areas. Citizens Foundation has undertaken the mission to improve and better these services for the rural poor. We have collaborated with the CSR initiative of NTPC for organizing Mega Medical Camps and Operation of Mobile Health Clinics in and around the Plant Catchment Area of the NTPC Power Project in Jharkhand. The undulating & difficult terrain of Jharkhand excludes the approachability of many human habitations by means of public transport. Hence, the conventional health–centers are quite distant from many given settlements. In our combined wisdom, health camps under National Health Mission (NHM) are the best instruments of offsetting this historical injustice and delivering the due to this neglected population. Our Health Camps also disseminate value–added services such as specialized facilities and pathological diagnostics. The motive of organizing Health Camps in catchment area of a PHC is to bring Healthcare to the doorsteps in under–served areas. Our Mobile Health Clinics are under vigil at all operating stations and projects of NTPC and revolutionizing general public health in the area.
