Challenge

The extended lockdowns and the suspension of public transport, completely cut off remote villages in the Osmanabad and Latur district in the state of Maharashtra making them inaccessible to any facilities including health facilities. Due to this, the vulnerable people especially the older people, pregnant mothers, adolescent girls, children and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease) who are more likely to become severely ill with this virus.

Solution

The PRIDE India's two fully equipped Mobile Medical Units (MMU) provides its preventive and curative health program by reaching out to the remote un-served/underserved villages in the Osmanabad and Latur district catering to all patients at their doorstep and also by providing hygiene kits to the vulnerable people. The MMU also screens the suspected coronavirus cases and refers them for further tests/treatment ensuring that they have access to health care and are safe even during this pandemic.

Long-Term Impact

Direct doorstep healthcare service to a population of 97,000 beneficiaries especially the vulnerable group of the targeted community. 100% ANC & PNC care with 100% institutional deliveries for pregnant mothers even in COVID 19 pandemic. Empowered community-conscious taking action to reduce the spread of the infection through basic literacy, hygiene, nutritional and health education. Reduced number of new cases in the intervention area. Regular tracking of non-covid patients.
