These identified PWMI get free treatment from a government hospital and Monochaithanya camps running by govt. And they are on regular treatment with the follow up of Asha workers.


     Every month second Tuesday conducted Manochaitnya camp (Super Tuesday) at Bailhongal government hospital along with DMHP and KLE hospital Belagavi. 35 PWMI get treatment every month and new cases also get treatment and follow up for next month.
