Salient Features of the Outreach Program
a) The Program works hand-in-hand with Local Government Bodies in the rural areas
b) The Operations are akin to a Hub & Spoke Model – A hub is one of the town of Uttar Pradesh, identified to station the mobile clinic and staff. About 40 – 50 villages within a 15-40 km radius from the Hub, with a population of about 1500 – 3000 and with no doctor available or no medical facilities are chosen for the visit by Mobile Outreach Clinic. The mobile clinic team stays in the hub and from there; the team goes out on every scheduled day to visit the villages.
c) The Mobile Clinic’s team consists of 1 Doctor, 2 Nurses and 1 Driver-cum-coordinator; a local Social Worker from the village helps the team in liaison with the villagers.
d) ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist) in each of these villages is identified well in advance and trained by way of a well-designed questionnaire in the Local Language on Rehabilitation outrreach programs.
