Transparent Hands intends to help the transgender community in Islamabad, by setting up a free medical camp and delivering a preventive healthcare session. Our medical team, which includes doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, will provide a wide range of free healthcare services to deserving patients. They will be providing the following:

  • Free Consultations
  • First Aid
  • Medicines 
  • Hepatitis B & C Screenings 
  • Blood Sugar Test
  • Blood Pressure Checkup
  • Uric Acid Test
  • Cholesterol Test
  • Ultrasound
  • Free Registration of Deserving Cases for Surgeries and Medical Procedures

Challenges 

Pakistan’s lack of education and economic opportunities forces transgender people to live outside of mainstream society and make a living by begging, dancing, and doing other immoral acts. Most of them have no access to healthcare facilities and face harassment and ridicule from hospital staff and patients. The trans people living in Islamabad are facing health disparities and barriers to accessing quality healthcare.

Transgender individuals are a high-risk population for mental and physical health problems. Isolation, discrimination, and transphobia can be among the leading causes of suicidal attempts, depression, alcohol abuse, and self-harm among trans people. Our highly trained medical staff will take care of the health needs of the most neglected transgender community in Islamabad at the upcoming camp.  

Our Solution 

Transparent Hands plans to arrange a free medical camp and preventive healthcare session on healthy habits and diets for the transgender community residing in Islamabad. We believe it’s important for the transgender community to learn about effective hygiene practices through awareness sessions like these. It encourages people to adopt healthy habits that will help them maintain their health throughout their lives. During these medical camps, our doctors and specialists will be available for free consultations, medicine, and diagnostic tests that have already been mentioned. The patients who need surgeries or other medical treatment will be registered with Transparent Hands and referred to one of our panel hospitals. Hundreds of trans people are in desperate need of your help and would be very grateful for any donation you can make to this worthwhile cause. Because of you, we will be able to provide free, high-quality medical care to one of the most neglected communities. It is not the first time we had done a free medical camp for the transgender community in Lahore on December 28, 2019, in Shah Noor Sabzazar, and also On 15th July 2019, Transparent Hands conducted a one-day medical camp for the Transgender community in Lahore.


Transparent Hands recently held a free medical camp and preventive healthcare session to make quality healthcare available to impoverished patients of the transgender community. The free medical camp was held in Bari Imam, Islamabad. 

Free Consultations, Medicines, and Diagnostic Tests

Our medical team of doctors, nurses, and pharmacists provided comprehensive medical care to 47 transgender patients. Services offered at the camp were: 

  • Free Consultations
  • First Aid
  • Medicines 
  • Hepatitis B & C Screenings 
  • Blood Sugar Test
  • Blood Pressure Checkup
  • Uric Acid Test
  • Cholesterol Test
  • Ultrasound
  • Typhoid Test

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. 

Preventive Healthcare 

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.

Impact

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.  

Thousands of donors worldwide are helping Transparent Hands champion the noble cause of providing quality healthcare facilities to underprivileged people in different parts of the country.
