Preventive Healthcare Session
At the free medical camp, one of our proficient doctors conducted a preventive healthcare session, specifically addressing skin infections and imparting knowledge on effective prevention strategies.
The free medical camp held at Fine Daily, Korangi had a significant impact on the lives of the 126 patients who received treatment. By providing much-needed medical consultations, diagnostic tests, and preventive healthcare services, the camp addressed their healthcare needs and relieved the financial burden on their families. This enabled them to access vital medical services that would have otherwise been inaccessible.
Furthermore, the camp’s emphasis on preventive healthcare, particularly through the session on cleanliness, equipped attendees with the knowledge to prevent the onset of various health issues. This proactive approach to healthcare will have a lasting impact on the overall well-being of the patients and their communities.
