Free Medical Camps
In rural areas, especially those in remote villages, the nearest hospital could be miles and miles away. Some might even have to travel to other cities just to take tests at medical laboratories. Despite government efforts like opening public hospitals and even giving free medicine, many people have yet to experience the benefits of adequate health services. Well aware of this situation, the private institutions and charitable organizations all over India are trying their best to provide medical services through mobile clinics.
The advantage of mobile clinics
The advantage of mobile clinics is the ability to respond to emergency situations in a quick time. It will be a quicker and more effective response to epidemic outbreaks. It is also more extensive access to preventive care for patients who do not require hospitalization or specialist visits. Mobile clinic staff can meet the victims in their time of need. When there are two or more mobile units in an area, they can be connected together to form a whole hospital or a complete medical facility. This can be especially useful in cases of natural disasters, like when a village is ravaged by hurricane, earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption or other kinds of calamity.
In above cases, mobile clinics provide health services – they also become modes of humanitarian vessels of charitable outreach. Mobile clinic services aim to provide free health care to the poor and needy, in collaboration with Volunteer Doctors and Nurses from hospitals and medical colleges. The expenses of the medicines are covered by the donations offered by the generous donors like you. The mobile medical service will directly give treatment to the patient wherever he/she is residing and this idea will be appreciated and welcomed by the people residing in rural areas of India. The medical mobile van will roam in entire village areas and provide medical facility to the patient directly. In this medical mobile van a doctor and nurse will also be available and they will prescribe the medicines and give treatment to the patients at the same place. In medical mobile van the time of expert and specialist doctor will also be fixed on routine basis for providing medical services to special treatment of patients directly and at the place where the patient is residing. ESCO aims to provide health care services to the poor through this program in collaboration with other non-profit organizations in India.
