Many children in Tamil Nadu do not have accessible and affordable health screening and health care
Many children in Tamil Nadu do not have accessible and affordable health screening and health care. The non-availability of basic health screening services for newborns/infants/children & the poor quality of care provided in the health facility potentially contribute to neonatal, infant and child deaths.
Ensuring early identification of disability/disease in children by conducting medical screening camps can avoid delays in diagnosing disability/disease, in accessing care, in reaching the appropriate health facility and in receiving quality care
Ekam will visit the village directly, conduct camps & facilitate camps
Children needing support will be identified by Ekam staff by networking with all Government stakeholders including Anganwadi Centres, Panchayat offices, hospitals, District early intervention centres etc. Ekam Staff will visit these centres directly/conduct camps/facilitate camps/ connect with concerned authorities and provide preventive, promotive, curative and referral health care services to the under privileged children in the village.
You can help save lives in India by simply donating today
Your donation will go towards saving children who are suffering with disability/disease unknowingly & help them get screened & get treated with appropriate care. This will help establish a mechanism for proper follow-up and care for those who need further medical attention. Referral to local Primary Health Centres or local Government Hospitals will be facilitated. Education to mothers will be provided on preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative aspect of health care.
