Health for rural poor
There are around 45-50 villages within 4-5 km radius of Vijay Mandir, Alwar,
having no access to proper medical facilities. A Government PHC
situated nearby is almost defunct. As such, the rural masses are at the mercy of
unregistered medical practitioners and quacks. Patients
have to travel 10-15 km to Alwar to access proper medical aid. Women in
particular get no specialised medical attention.
SAPNA started a Public Healthcare Centre (PHC) at Vijay
Mandir, Alwar, on August 1, 2008.
The part time clinic (8 am to 12 noon) is
looked after by a doctor and a compounder. A basic diagnostic laboratory having
a semi-automated chemical analyser and automated haematology analyser and x-ray
facility has been provided. A token registration charge of Rs. 10 is charged from every patient. Medicines are
dispensed free of cost. The service of a gynaecologist is provided thrice a
month. The patients are also counselled about the further course of treatment.
facility also caters to the medical needs of the inmates of the Home for Sick
and Destitute. A DOT centre was recently added to the PHC to treat tuberculosis
The PHC is also equipped with a hi-tech ambulance which is
used to ferry patients from the Trauma Centre, Delhi, and transporting patients
from the Home in times of emergency .
