Health Facilities for the rural poor during COVID

During the lockdowns, when most of the services had almost stopped, many facilities available for the people including transportation and health facilities had been affected with severe implications on the rural poor people especially the senior citizens, pregnant and lactating mothers, children, adolescent girls and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, PLHIV) who are more likely becoming severely ill with this virus.  

In order to provide primary healthcare services to people living in rural and under-served areas mainly with the objective of taking healthcare service delivery to the doorsteps of the underprivileged people, PRIDE India’s fully equipped Mobile Medical Units continued its preventive and curative health program and has gone beyond their regular services by screening and testing patients and migrants returning to their village and also by sensitizing the local communities about COVID-19 and ways to prevent oneself from this virus. 

The MMU, which is a mechanism to provide its outreach services in the rural and remote areas has reached out to the neediest patients during this period.  

  • 36182 patients provided medical support through outreach in 102 villages which is an  increase of 26% above the normal reach 
  • 15682 migrants, symptomatic, suspected patients screened across 48 villages- 165 referred and 47 found positive 
  • 10105 patients benefitted through the special Fever OPD by the Mobile Medical Unit.  

TESTIMONIAL BY A PATIENT: 

“My name is Sheela (Name changed), 58 years from Sastur. We are glad that we have the benefit of the services of the Mobile Medical Unit even in this lockdown. It saves us from long-distance travel especially when we are not feeling well. Also, we would have to spend a lot of time and money to travel to a hospital. The services provided are very good and helps our families get proper medical treatment. We are really thankful to PRIDE India and all it’s supporters for this service provided to us.” 

These rural patients were happy as they received timely medical treatment even when the health facilities and transportation had been affected.
