Primary Health Center & Medical Camps

Most villages in the border region of Odisha and West Bengal lack basic healthcare and without even primary medical centers.  Some of the common health problems include tuberculosis, skin diseases, and malnutrition for women. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA In 2006 and 2007, STEP arranged a brief period for free health services and medicine in the tribal villages, with the doctor’s services provided by government hospitals. In the first two years, about 250 people in five villages received free health care.  In 2013, our medical camps in three villages helped 700 patients with medicines and 500 people with reading glasses. In the future, we are interested in networking with doctors, nurses and paramedics and conduct mobile health clinics in remote villages.
