Connecting local responses around the world
Dream of the village Dhanout in Himachal Pradesh is to stay healthy. One of the action decided by Patient Support Group (PSG) during action plan meeting was to organize screening camps for Diabetes and Hypertension regularly at Panchayat or village level.
Anil Sharma followed up the members of the group and came to know that the group is planning to organize screening camp at village level. The group decided the date, venue of the camp and called Anil to attend it.
PSG organized its first camp on 23rd July, 2018 and 30 persons were screened for Diabetes and Hypertension.
Health workers decided that they will continue organizing such camps every month and will cover all the villages.
The roles have started changing now as instead of HealthRise project organizing the camps with the help of Health staff, PSG has started taking ownership and organizing the camps..
