About 5000 families from Oct 2011 to Jan 2012 received medical care, medicine help, patients from all age groups were seen by our doctors through medical amps at village level. Among the seen, patients with skin pathologies were noticeable with diseases such as folliculitis ,impetigo and scabies being their companions for an unknown time. Waterborne diseases  followed next with gastroenteritis ,typhoid fever ,cholera and plain diarrhea toping among this group. Malaria continued to pose a major threat as ever with dengue as its worst and final attack.

Women in general and in their gestational periods presented with iron deficiency anemia and complained of general body weakness and fatigue.

Children mostly presented with discharging ears and otitis, malnutrition and being underweight drew our  maximum attention.
