Mobile health services can reach the underserved population living in far flung areas. These services benefit those who have no access to medical facilites. On 26 June 2019, CybageAsha launched CybageAsha Arogya Vahan in collaboration with Rural Development and Research Center (RDRC). This will serve the villages in the remote areas of Dholka taluka in Gujarat.
This project is designed to provide free, accessible, and quality health aid to people living in remote villages. The project is committed to spreading health and hygiene awareness in people, providing primary checkup facilities, and conducting regular follow-ups. Equipped with a medical team, medicines, and diagnostic kits, it pays special attention to maternal and child healthcare. The medical team comprises a nurse, doctor, and a program coordinator. In just a month after the launch of the program, the van has provided medical aid to 1523 patients in 12 villages. The beneficiaries of the program have been issued medical cards to record their medical history. As a mobile dispensary, the van is also helpful in the distribution of multi-vitamin supplements and regular follow-ups of patients.
