Report of the Extension and Outreach Activities

Year 2015 -16

Medical camps are conducted to provide medical treatment for the underprivileged and for those who have poor access to medical services. Camps are not only conducted to identify and treat diseases but also to create an awareness amidst the population. It is one of the effective methods adopted to carry out limited health interventions.

Camps in Karpaga Vinayaga Institute of Medical Sciences are conducted in a regular basis to make sure that people get the healthcare needed at the right time. In these camps we provide basic medical check up with a team of specialists which includes,

            School camps-Pediatrician, Ophthalmologist, Otorhinolaryngologist, Obstetrician

            General camps- Physician, Pediatrician, Ophthalmologist

            Special Camps-Physician, Orthopedician, Pediatrician, Ophthalmologist,

Otorhinolaryngologist, Obstetrician

Every specialist will have a postgraduate and two interns accompanying him. We visit schools, Industries and homes for the elderly. Free treatment and drugs are dispersed in all the camps. Special camps are done at a nominal charge. Our main objective of conducting medical camps is to provide initial care to people in an ethical way. Other objective would be to

  1. Provide free and good quality medical services to the needy
  2. Provide awareness about communicable and non-communicable disease and teach them about Primordial and Primary prevention
  3. Provide information about Secondary and Tertiary prevention to those who are infected with a particular disease
  4. Identify rare and severe cases and refer them to our tertiary care hospital
  5. To evaluate the living conditions and help to teach the public about health style modifications
