JanSwasthya Kalyan Vahika is a community centric project initiated by Indiabulls Foundation with an objective of providing primary health care services to the under-privileged population through a medically equipped mobile van. JanSwasthya Kalyan Vahika operates in Mumbai, Panvel, Thane, Khalapur and Parli.
The program primarily focuses on providing wide range of awareness, preventive and curative health services to the beneficiaries. Each of these vans caters to approximately 15 to 16 locations per week and diagnoses approximately 150 to 200 patients per day. These vans run 6 days a week and cover the assigned locations on rotational basis. a referral system is in place to ensure timely treatment and cure of the patients. There are fixed nodal points to which the medical van caters to every week.
Through our 17 JanSwasthya Kalyan Vahika vehicles, we cater to and diagnose approx. more than 7,00,000 patients per year.
Indiabulls Foundation, the CSR arm of Indiabulls group, has 4 free medical clinics at Lower Parel, Santacruz, One IBC and IFC in Elphinstone to provide free primary and preventive health care to the underprivileged.
The clinics cater to the primary and preventive healthcare needs of the weaker and underprivileged patients of the nearby slums. These clinics provide free diagnosis by a professional MBBS registered doctor with counseling & free medicines given, by a qualified pharmacist.
Qualified medical personnel and six days open a week operations ensures timely and effective health care to weaker sections of society.
Looking at the poor state of women's health, IBF has gynaecologists serving these women and conducting counseling activities for them along with free treatment.
Patients belonging to BPL (Below Poverty Line) and APL (Above Poverty Line) categories upon furnishing their respective ration card and photo identity proof can only avail the facility of these clinics.
On seeing the primary and preventive healthcare need for the urban poor, Indiabulls Foundation plans to open many such clinics for the upliftment of the underprivileged.
For the upliftment of the weaker and underprivileged people of the rural villages and tribal belts of Maharashtra, Indiabulls Foundation organises a free health check-up camps every month in collaboration with community based organisations like schools and ashrams.
With the expertise of our professional MBBS registered doctors and MSPC registered pharmacists, the camp provides primary health diagnosis, free medicines and health awareness activities to the weaker sections of the society. Provision of free diagnosis and medicines to the women and girls by specialized gynaecologists and female doctors for complete and effective treatment are also there.
Major diseases catered to are anemia, cough-cold, fever, indigestion, acid peptic disorders, diarrhoea, arthritis, nutritional deficiencies, UTI and other related diseases. Nutritional supplement ‘Paushtik Ahar’ is also distributed to the undernourished and malnourished children of these tribal belts and villages.
The health camps also act as a medium to create and spread awareness on various health diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, dengue, skin related diseases, H1N1 Swine Flu and also stress on post-natal, ante-natal, family planning are focused upon.
Extending its initiatiatives in the thrust area of Health, Indiabulls Foundation has sponsored free surgeries of 600 children suffering from cleft deformities last year and this year too is supporting an equal number of children taking the total beneficiary count to 1800.
Indiabulls Foundation in partnership with Smile Train conducts free surgeries of cleft or palate deformities in 6 different cities in India namely Cuttack, Bilaspur, Gorakhpur, Burdwan, Jabalpur and Mumbai. With these surgeries not only does the facial construct of the child comes back to normality but gives the child a new sense of being and confidence.
People with disabilities in the developing world do not have adequate access to medical care. A wheelchair is a form of assistive technology which eases the burden for many. On seeing the ongoing need Indiabulls Foundation distributed wheelchairs to 100 underprivileged physically challenged individuals in Chennai. The recipient’s mobility, employability, and independence was greatly increased with this initiative.
The event was organized in collaboration with Wheelchair Fencing Federation of India.
