Through its medical centres, mobile clinics, and medical camps, our local Partner Karuna-Shechen offers medical aid, quality health care, and health education to the poorest populations in eastern Tibet, India, and Nepal. The medical centre’s programmes include general medical consultations, a program for tuberculosis, family planning, and safe motherhood.

The mobile clinics programme makes regular visits to 18 villages located between 12 and 60 km from the medical centre and offers free health services to the 100,000 inhabitants of the region. The medical team, which consists of a doctor, a nurse, and a pharmacist, visits each village twice a month to treat 60 to 100 patients per day, the majority of whom are women and children.

The mobile clinics allow everyone to make weekly visits to remote villages in the states of Bihar (Gaya, Aurangabad, Jehanabad, and Nawada districts) and Jharkhand (villages on the outskirts of Hata).

Bihar is one of the poorest and most backward states of India. The mobile clinics system is a vital lifeline for the rural population that has no access to medical care.

Characteristics of mobile clinics in India :

  • Areas of operation: remote rural areas.
  • The number of clinics : 3 in Bihar, 1 in Jharkhand.
  • Patients: the inhabitants of 852 villages; women and children represent 75% of the beneficiaries.
  • Days of operation: 6 days a week in Bihar, 3 days a week in Jharkhand.
  • The number of patients:60 to 100 per day, i.e. 52,942 per year.
