Diseases and Treatments
The patients had a variety of health issues, including the flu, cough, fever, seasonal allergies, diarrhea, diabetes, abdominal pain, skin infections, Hepatitis C, migraine, and body pain. A total of 58 screening tests were also performed. Three surgical cases were also registered.
A doctor held a preventive healthcare session for all attendees at the medical camp. The doctor told the people there about healthy habits and diets and how important it is to follow good hygiene practices.
This free medical camp made a difference in the lives of 47 deserving transgender patients by addressing their medical needs. This community suffered due to a lack of doctors and quality healthcare facilities. Our committed team of medical professionals examined the patients using the latest diagnostic equipment. Patients were given free medicines as well as a preventive healthcare session on healthy hygiene practices.
