About the project:

Life is the most precious gift of God, and a Healthy Life is a blessing that only few of us enjoy!

The Sundarbans, a unique biosphere reserve of mangrove forests and one of the global heritage sites, are located in the extreme south of West Bengal (an eastern Indian state) and Bangladesh, the neighbouring country. The major findings related to people’s health in the Sundarbans are classified into two groups according to their links to the following areas: (1) health status, and (2) health care utilization. 

Health status:
  1. General morbidity rate is higher than the state average.
  2. The dual burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases is quite evident.
  3. About half of the children (below 5 years) are chronically malnourished.
  4. Women share disproportionately higher burden of ailments than men do.
Health care utilization:
  1. Very high utilization of inpatient care reflected by high hospitalization rate (4.2%).
  2. Absolute dominance of Rural Medical Practitioners (RMP) in outpatient care market.

Problems with Rural Medical Practitioners:
Gaps in public health care have helped RMPs – the army of less qualified providers - establish a strong network of parallel health care. Their treatment behaviour often reflects lack of judgment regarding rational use of drugs. Poor are usually benefitted by RMP services but also bear huge risks associated with utilization of this unregulated practice.

Providing regular free health camps by specialised doctors in 4 area of Sundarbans viz. Tridibnagar at Jharkhali Island, Satyadaspur at G Plot Island , Paschim Surendranagar at Patharpratima Island and Binodpur at Maipith IslandTridibnagar at Jharkhali Island, Satyadaspur at G Plot Island , Paschim Surendranagar at Patharpratima Island and Binodpur at Maipith Island.  Free Camps will be held once in every month in each location i.e. 4 medical camps per month.
