Essential healthcare in remote areas of
Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana

WHAT WE DO

MSF conducts mobile clinics to take primary healthcare to people living in remote villages, who find it extremely difficult to access medical care. Our teams provide free treatment for malaria, respiratory infections, pneumonia and skin diseases among others. The clinics also offer a separate area for women to address needs in reproductive health, where group and individual sessions are conducted on topics such as hygiene, care of newborns and sexually transmitted infections.

IN 2017

For people with limited or no access to healthcare, MSF continued to conduct mobile clinics to provide primary healthcare in remote villages in south Chhattisgarh, north Andhra Pradesh and north Telangana. Efforts to raise awareness on relevant health issues continued though interactive presentations on malaria, breastfeeding, use of latrines, general hygiene, HIV/AIDS, scabies and more.
