Who We Are

Our doctors provide service to the surrounding community, which in turn greatly appreciates these services.

Child Development Project: Training session conducted by Dr. Vibha Krishnamurthy and Dr. Anjali Joshi of Ummeed for our Community Health Workers. The project is about early detection and prevention of developmental delays and disabilities. Early detection often can help children get cured of some disabilities and help the children live a better life even if the disability is not curable.

Our doctors not only treat the community members, they even counsel them whenever they need counselling.

Our doctors are now considered to be a part of the families in these communities, they discuss their personal problems, inform them about various diseases and infections and treat them with utmost care and concern.

We conduct street plays and posters exhibition programmes in the community for improved awareness. We have a community OPD where check-ups are conducted along with dispense basic medicines. We refer the cases that need more attention to the Government hospitals.

Many community members lack awareness on health issues and cannot access health services. We have trained SHG women as paraprofessional health workers They have been conducting sessions for the parents of students in various schools , have organized eye, cancer  and blood check-up camps in three neighbouring communities which  are supported by Forbes Marshall. Community Health Workers have successfully worked on projects like, controlling anaemia and malnutrition among children.
