Samata plans to conduct comprehensive health camps in tribal inhabited areas of Visakhapatnam district with special emphasis on women and children. This program will reach out to the most marginalized communities in the region and help us develop a baseline data.
These communities are hill dwelling tribals who have very poor to no access to basic health facilities as their regions lack proper road network. In recent years the people aged above 50 are facing health issues which goes undetected due to unavailability of facilities. Children too in particular those below the age of 15 are affected by the lack of immediate medical facilities.
The project will initiate developing a database that can then be used as a bench mark to future interventions. The project will also help design and implement government aided health programs that with increased impact.
The long term impact will be on the children, especially women who are increasingly being detected with health issues that were unheard of a decade ago. The elderly people will also get an opportunity to track their health progress.
