047 Health Camp for the Migrant Community 

Ahmednagar 2023: Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra (BGVK) organized a Health Awareness Program and Health Camp for the migrant community in the Arangaon area of the Ahmednagar district. This initiative fell under the umbrella of the 'Project for Migrant Community’, supported by the Salesian Mission.

Health camps play a vital role in addressing diverse healthcare needs, embodying a proactive approach to public health. They concentrate on preventive healthcare measures, encompassing health check-ups, vaccinations and awareness programs. These initiatives significantly contribute to enhancing healthcare accessibility, promoting preventive measures and addressing specific health needs, thereby fostering the overall well-being of communities.

Dr. Pravin Gaikwad and Lab Technician Pramod Kamble played instrumental role in conducting this health camp tailored for the migrant community. The camp covered a range of topics, including General Health Checkups, HB, BP and Sugar testing. In addition, the community received valuable insights on maintaining a good diet, sanitation practices, nutrition, and information on infectious diseases. A total of 167 individuals directly benefited from this health camp and the beneficiaries expressed deep gratitude to BGVK for spearheading this impactful initiative.
