All major diseases will be covered at the medical camp like kidney or liver ailments, ENT ailments, HIV, cancer, heart ailments etc.,” he explained.
Over the past five years, R K HIV has successfully conducted 7971 medical camps in which over 37,71,578 patients were screened in states like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, MP, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Rajasthan, Orissa. A cross-sectional survey in an urban slum and surrounding rural areas was conducted to understand the various health hazards affecting the key socio-demographic patterns and the precautionary measures and actions taken if any by the class.
