Improving access to basic health services is at the core of each of the functions that Sukarya is engaged in. Of utmost priority is to provide easy access to quality health services, especially to marginalised and vulnerable communities.
Community health clinics, mobile diagnostic clinics and regular health camps are conducted in hard-to-reach and far -flung areas to bring basic health services at the doorstep of underserved communities. Basic health check-ups and services are provided to children living in the slums and studying in make-shift schools of Delhi and Gurgugram.
Provision of Basic Health Services
Under this initiative, Sukarya brings basic quality health services right at the doorstep of underprivileged people through community health centres, mobile diagnostic clinics, health camps and school health programme. The focus is to implement activities and interventions in areas that do not have any access to healthcare. The interventions cover the entire gamut from prevention to treatment. Building awareness and counselling are integral features of the programme.
Improving access to basic health services so that every individual can exercise his/her fundamental right to health is at the core of all functions and services. The team works to provide easy access to quality health services to marginalised and vulnerable communities. It runs mobile clinics and conducts health camps in difficult-to-reach areas to provide key interventions at the community level.
Volunteers belonging to the communities in which Sukarya works, forms the backbone of all its interventions. Young women and men are mobilised and trained to build awareness among the people and serve as an important link with doctors and care providers. Government efforts are supplemented and focus on filling gaps rather than recreating programmes that are already existing. Linkages are built with the existing government infrastructure, making referrals to hospitals and helping the government in their immunization drives.
Community Health Workers: Backbone of community health interventions
Community Health Workers (CHW) hail from the communities where Sukarya has its presence. They form a critical part of the interventions. Young women and men are mobilised and trained so they can play a critical role in building awareness among people regarding basic health, hygiene and sanitation. They serve as an important link between beneficiaries and doctors changing attitudes, behaviours, perceptions and habits with respect to good health.
