VIMS-CHERE Second MultiSpecialty Clinic

VIMS-CHERE second Multi-Specialty event was held at Kandavara Polyclinic on 2013:MAR:16, Saturday. In total, 107 patients from Kandavara and surrounding villages got benefited specialty services. Highlight of this camp was that there were more people from the surrounding villages like Agalagurki and Jadala Thimmanahalli. This means that more and more villages are getting benefited out of the facility we have created in Kandavara. Background: Team Canadia partnered with Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre (VIMS) to provide specialized health care services through specialty clinics for people in and around Kandavara village. VIMS Management agreed to conduct their specialty clinics on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Promotion: Team Canadia along with Kandavara Task Force (KTF) promoted the event and distributed pamphlets in Kandavara and the surrounding the villages a week before the event and ensured that the patients were lined up by then. Sister Kavitha promoted the event thoroughly through all the patients who visited the clinic on a day to day basis. Now it has registered amongst the villagers that 3rd Saturday of every month will be a good day for them to avail specialty services without traveling to Bangalore or walking till Chickballapur which has minimal facilities for the poor. Event Details: This being the second specialty clinic, the specialists team was different compared to the first one. The team was lead by Dr Jaidev, Dermatologist, VIMS and in total there were 9 Specialists who volunteered for the day and they arrived at the venue at 11.15 hrs. By then there were almost 40 patients who were eagerly waiting for them to arrive. Registrations began at 10.30 hrs and ended after seeing the last patient at 13.45 hrs. Since there were two community medicine specialists with the team, it was decided to have a health checkup session at the Government Primary School in Kandavara. It worked out very well and almost 96 school children got their health checkups done. Team of Specialists from VIMS and the clinic performance as under:
