About The Organization

After about 10 years in active service IAMD takes some consolation from the fact that on account of its continued and relentless efforts families of fellow sufferers have benefited vastly.

IAMD has been working on a multi-pronged strategy to help mitigate the sufferings of these victims in every conceivable manner that is humanly possible. These efforts are being made at four different levels.

1) Through the helpline IAMD envisage Direct Contact Program (D.C.P) with the patients mainly by telephone, newsletters and circulars. This has helped alleviate the self esteem level of patients tremendously. As a result Muscular Dystrophy Families have been saved from the Omnipresent Quacks, Witch Doctors and self styled Hakeems.

2) The feeling of being united in a brotherhood and at difficult times has bolstered confidence of our patients to the extent that today they are economically self dependent and hence to a certain extent, physically as well.

3) IAMD’s Specific Need Oriented Program (SNOP) has focused on the specific needs of our patients e.g. well-designed wheelchairs, gadgets, financial aid etc.

4) Diagnosis is the basic vagary associated with Muscular Dystrophy. Efforts are still on to persuade state run health machinery by way of hospitals to establish proper diagnostic facilities and workshops for doctors to facilitate the diagnosis of Muscular Dystrophy. There is constant follow up with concerned health authorities to make life a little easier for the already despondent patient.
