Health Camp

Project Name: Health Camp Project 

Project Implementation Area: Baiteshwor, Dolakha

Considering accessibility and area coverage, the health camp will be conducted in a common venue for different wards. The venue model will be as follows:

  •  Baiteshwor ward numbers 1,2 and 3: Venue A(at HCH Hospital )
  • Baiteshwor ward numbers 4,5 and 6: Venue B
  • Baiteshwor ward numbers 7,8 and 6(few): Venue C

Background:

Rural areas usually don’t have fully equipped hospitals, both in mechanical and human resources. Even if there is hospital inadequacy of specialist doctors is faced. So, residents of these areas usually don’t get to undergo diagnosis and treatment under expert supervision. They are compelled to visit headquarter or the capital of the country. This visit turns out to be time-consuming as well as expensive considering the travel time and cost. As a result, people do not go for any health examination unless their situation is critical. However, if the specialist doctors are brought to their place through health camps, people will happily go for diagnosis and treatment. Also, during such health camps, any disease or problem can be diagnosed at an early stage which may save the lives of individuals.
