Health & Hygene
Sundarban is a remote area with severe communication problem in terms of connectivity and transport; hence the locals are deprived of proper medical services. To address this crisis, the forest department wanted to provide preventive and curative healthcare to the people of Sundarban Biosphere Reserve. In this context we organized several successive general and specialized medical camps in five different ranges under South 24 Parganas Division entirely sponsored by the Forest Department in several phases to diagnose, treat patients with different medical conditions and put up several follow up camps to ensure their healthy recovery to prepare a comprehensive idea can be made about the patterns of the health and hygiene of the locals and the report was submitted to the forest department.
The proposed sites were under Five different ranges in the South 24 Parganas Division. Eye, general, pediatric, gynecology; these four categories of camps were executed in the sites. The sites and camp details are listed here.
The camps were executed thrice in each place within a time-span of four months. The main reason to organize the camps thrice in each place was to identify whether the medical camps are bringing any positive results to the people or not.
In a span of a year, we executed these camps under the department’s able supervision which benefitted around 3500 people received healthcare services in a span of a year. We have received positive feedbacks from hundreds of patients and with that inspiration we want to continue providing them the services they require in future as well.
