31 July 2023 | News

Mobile medical vans will be used to conduct 18 health camps twice a month at nine health facilities

Lupin Human Welfare & Research Foundation (LHWRF), the social responsibility arm of Mumbai-based pharma major Lupin, strengthened its Desh Bandhu Jan Aarogya Sewa by flagging off its Mobile Medical Van (MMV) in Jaipur. The fully equipped MMV was flagged off by Parsadi Lal Meena, Health Minister, Government of Rajasthan.

The Desh Bandhu Jan Aarogya Sewa aims to enhance the well-being of communities by working towards addressing non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with high disease burden, with a specific focus on Cardiovascular and Respiratory diseases. Aligned with this goal, in November 2022, LHWRF entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Rajasthan, forging a partnership to work together on this important area with the State Department of Health and Family Welfare.

The fully equipped MMV will function as a mobile healthcare unit, equipped to deliver a comprehensive range of essential diagnostic services and medical support. This MMV enhances access to screening, diagnostic, treatment, and disease management capabilities in the Rajgarh, Laxmangad, Renni and Kherali blocks of Alwar.

Moreover, as an integral part of the initiative, 18 health camps will be conducted twice a month at nine selected health facilities. These camps will be staffed by trained MBBS doctors who will be supported by dedicated paramedical personnel.

The Desh Bandhu Jan Aarogya Sewa focuses on respiratory and heart ailments and aims to strengthen existing primary healthcare services, working closely with government efforts. With a particular emphasis on hypertension, ischemic heart disease (IHD), cardiovascular diseases (CVD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and asthma, the programme seeks to provide comprehensive support to the population at risk of developing or living with these conditions.
