Basic Healthcare Services

Immunisation camp in Saraswatikunj slum

Improving access to basic health services is at the core of all our functions. We work to provide easy access to quality health services to the marginalised and vulnerable communities. We run community health clinics, mobile diagnostic clinics and conduct health camps in unreached areas to bring basic health services at the door-step of the underserved communities. We provide basic health check-ups and services to children living in the slums and studying in the make-shift schools of Delhi and Gurgaon.   

Community Health Workers belonging to the communities in which we work, form critical aspects of our interventions. Young women and men are mobilised and trained by Sukarya staff. They play a critical role in building awareness among the people regarding basic health, hygiene and santitation.  They serve as an important link between the beneficiaries and the doctors. The community health workers play a crucial role by providing much needed  help in changing the attitudes regarding good health.

We build linkages with the existing government infrastructure, sending referrals to hospitals and helping the government in their immunisation drives.
