R K HIV AIDS Research & Care Centre created a Guinness World Record for the “Largest Sexual Health Awareness Lesson” – mega healthcare movement, ‘Swasth Zindagi’, – one of the largest medical camps which was held on 19th Feb 2017 at the MMRDA Grounds, BKC in Mumbai.
Over 52 hospitals from all over Maharashtra, thousands of doctors, paramedical doctors and volunteers joined the movement catering to the needy, who are unaware of the benefits and medical schemes they are eligible for. The biggest challenge in implementing the primary health care principles is of equitable distribution of health care to all.
Speaking to IndiaScribes.com, Dr Dharmendra Kumar said, “the rural masses and urban slum dwellers are most vulnerable to the lack of access to health care, and R K HIV AIDS Research & Care Centre aims to bridge this gap. The underprivileged and the slum dwellers in India continue to have poor access to basic determinants of good health as well as to the curative services from government sources during illness as the masses are indifferent or not aware of the various medical schemes and benefits available to them. ‘Swasth Zindagi’ by RK HIV AIDS is one step towards this cause. 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.
