In Islamabad, common health problems include respiratory infections, waterborne diseases, non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, and vector-borne diseases like dengue and malaria fever. These challenges can be addressed through improving hygiene practices, ensuring access to clean water and sanitation, and promoting healthy lifestyles.
The healthcare camp in Islamabad is dedicated to addressing the healthcare challenges faced by the underserved community. Its primary objective is to provide immediate medical assistance, diagnosis, and treatment to individuals who lack regular access to healthcare facilities. In addition to general medical check-ups, diagnostic tests, and immunizations, the camp will also prioritize raising awareness about preventive measures and promoting hygiene practices. By bringing healthcare services directly to the community, the camp aims to overcome barriers of distance and accessibility. Patients requiring surgeries or other treatments will be registered with Transparent Hands and referred to panel hospitals. Your generous donation to this cause can profoundly impact the lives of deserving patients in the region.
