Mobile Distribution Medicine
Free Medical Aid Camp is one such special initiative of Gaudiya Mission to provide healthcare services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized community in remote rural areas and slums through standalone camps. Customized health camps are organized offering comprehensive health services – curative, preventive, primitive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas. Multi-disciplinary projects include gynecological, ophthalmology and dental services etc., whereas other interventions can be general in nature. Medical camps are organized in different parts of the country on the basis of health needs of a specific location. These health camps aim at promoting health seeking behavior in the long term and thus, unlike a general curative health camp, these camps also majorly work on building awareness regarding common ailments, family planning methods, nutrition and hygiene and sanitation. These camps provide comprehensive health services free of any cost.
