Preventive Health Camps

Why

Sharply escalating costs of living have removed good quality health care from the reach of financially underprivileged people. Such people often ignore health problems at early stages because of difficulty in accessing quality health care and ignorance of health care basics. BHUMI's Preventive Health Camps extend professional medical help to the financially weak sections of society in both rural and urban societies to redress the health-related problems they face and to spread awareness on healthy living.

 

How

After identifying areas that need help, camps are held with the participation of doctors and optometrists. Apart from advice on preventive health care, general and specialist medical care is given. All medicines are distributed free of cost. For those with visual defects, BHUMI provides spectacles at concessional rates and facilitates free cataract surgeries.
