~More than 3000 residents benefited from the camp~

With an aim to provide better healthcare, Medlife International, India’s largest e-pharmacy organised a medical check-up and treatment camp on Sunday, February 17th to render healthcare support to residents of Kaloor in Kochi. The medical camp was organised at Greets Public School and around 3500 attended the medical camp.

A team of special Red Cross certified doctors including gynaecologists, paediatricians, pulmonologists and dentists conducted check-ups (Physical Examination,Overallhealth index of Women, Reproductive Health check-up and Wellness, Health and Nutrition level of infants etc).  As part of the camp, the patients were free check-ups and offered treatments at subsidized rates. The camp was inaugurated by Hibi Eden, MLA. The Chief Guest for the event was PM Harris, Chairman, Standing Committee for Works, Corporation of Kochi and the guest of honour was .AbdulKhadar, Residents Association Secretary.

Speaking on this initiative, Tushar Kumar, Founder and CEO of Medlife said, “Medlife is working towards improving healthcare access across India andthrough this camp we want to assure optimum health care services and counselling to people. The main objective of conducting the health camp was to create awareness and educate people on general health and hygiene. This is a pilot camp in the down town of Cochin - Just 2 Kms away from heart of the city, and highly populated area. Based on successful response of this Camp, we can do a Mega camp for Cochin Corporation. And unlike any state of India, Kerala is a continuous town.We hope to drive more such initiatives with the aim of providing better access to people residing in rural parts of India.”

According to National Health Profile 2018 released recently by the Central Bureau of Health Intelligence (CBHI), there remains a severe scarcity of doctors in the country and people continue to incur heavy medical expenditure across rural hospitals. One allopathic government doctor in India, on an average, attends to a population of 11,082, which is 10 times more than the WHO recommended doctor-population ratio of 1:1,000. According to WHO, one of the important reason for declining of rural health care is inadequate human resources in healthcare system. 

Other facilities at the camp included blood check-ups and home delivery of medicines at subsidised rates.
