I am working with NGO MAMTA for healthrise program supported by ABT associates and funded by Medtronic philanthropy.Through SALT and CLCP we are trying to motivate patients to respond to hypertension and diabetes. I saw the following changes after CLCP in Patient Support Group in Madhorghat, Himachal, India.
After dream building in May, 13 women had immediately got themselves screened in May end.
We did a follow up meeting with the PSG on their action plans. I am happy that 3 out of these 13 women now regularly go for check ups.
In the action plan meeting, the participants had discussed that very few men attend the meeting. So when we did the follow up meeting, women got two men. The men were very motivated and they with some others made a plan to repair the dustbins. They repaired the dustbins and also cleaned up the waste around and put it in the dustbins.
