Project Pitch By: Dakshas (Sharma Family Charitable Trust)

 

Proposed Project Title


Protect Healthcare Workers in Govt Community Clinics (Basti Dawakhanas)

 

Thematic Area

Eradicating hunger, poverty and malnutrition, promoting health care, sanitation & safe drinking water

Sub Thematic Area

Healthcare Donations (Ambulance, Equipments, Money Etc.)

Project Synopsis

The first point of contact of any patient is generally their government community center. There are 73 such centers in Hyderabad, which have four healthcare workers each and see an average of 50-100 patients per day. They see the bulk of cases in primary care and would be the first to contact any cases in the community. They also ensure that healthcare units and hospitals units upstream are not overwhelmed by treating the majority of minor complaints. It is important that they can ensure that their premises are infection free. Dakshas surveyed 73 of these clinics, out of which 50 have requested support. Dakshas was able to supply 5 such clinics for this week while the survey was being conducted. Over these last four weeks it has developed a well-defined supply chain, which can easily support these 50 Basti Dawakhanas. We seek your help to expand to 50 Community Clinics.

Protecting Healthcare Workers in Community Basti Dawakhana
The first point of contact of any patient is generally their government community center. There are 73 such centers in Hyderabad, which have four healthcare workers each and see an average of 50-100 patients per day. They see the bulk of cases in primary care and would be the first to contact any cases in the community. They also ensure that healthcare units and hospitals units upstream are not overwhelmed by treating the majority of minor complaints. 
Dakshas surveyed 73 of these clinics, out of which 50 have requested support. Dakshas was able to supply 5 such clinics for this week while the survey was being conducted. Dakshas is currently supplying a total of 42 units - 18 old age homes, 11 GHMC shelter homes, 3 homeless shelters, 6 migrant shelters and 5 Basti Dawakhanas. Over these last four weeks it has developed a well-defined supply chain, which can easily support these 50 Basti Dawakhanas.
