Rural Health

We conduct health camps, which feature free health screening, treatments, medications and health education. Generally, we allow the collaborating healthcare facilities to promote themselves during our health camps, and in return, they agree to provide us a medical team for our health camps. We also negotiate with partner hospitals to reduce the cost of invasive treatment and hospitalization required for critically ill patients we encounter during our field work. Because health camps alone are not sustainable, we mainly use them as an incentive for rural residents to attain our health education sessions and community meetings.
