Two doctors assisted by two attendants and two drivers run a mobile health consultation service. They visit 69 villages in tehsils Abu Road, Pindwara and Reodar in district Sirohi, a population of about 150,000.
Why is the project relevant?
The service plugs a gap in available health services. For most of these villages, the nearest government-run Primary Health Centre is 5 to 20 km away. Travelling to and fro to see a doctor takes up the better part of a day, and means the loss of a day’s wage. Understandably, these people tend to delay doctor’s visits.
