People in rural and remote areas are mostly poor and less educated while the infrastructure provided by the government is also insufficient to provide basic health facilities for the locals. This hinders them to visit good and suitable medical facilities and find suitable treatment for their ailments.
Besides its several health and medical facilities, Alkhidmat Health Foundation also arranges mobile medical camps as its outreach program to provide medical and health facilities to those who can’t afford medical services. These camps provide specialized medical staff for the patients at their nearby places. These medical camps provide initial diagnostic facilities through qualified medical staff to the patients. Patients are examined and prescribed initial treatment according to their symptoms and sometimes they are referred to a suitable medical facility.
