Health Camps

Even after decades of freedom, India is struggling to provide basic health services to its people. According to government sources, in India 45 children die every hour due to respiratory infections. 1 child dies every 2 minutes due to diarrhoea. And annually, about 2 million children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases.

The situation calls for timely care and diagnosis which can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality especially among children and women.

Smile Health Camps is one such special initiative of Smile Foundation to provide health care services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized community in remote rural areas and slums through standalone camps. Smile organizes customized health camps extensively across the country offering comprehensive health services – curative, preventive, promotive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas.

Smile Health Camps aims at reaching out to at least 500 districts in 2 years time and expects to improve the health seeking behaviour among the community. The uniqueness of the model lies in its comprehensive approach where health promotion and prevention are given equal importance while curative care is administered.
