It is this new act of care and compassion that has brought about the Global Doctor’s Association for the Himalayas (GDAH), registered under the Indian Trust act 1882. It is an initiative to bring together doctors and medical professionals from around the world to deliver medical care and generate awareness on health and disease prevention in the Himalayas. The sole aim of establishing Global Doctors Association for the Himalayas, is to reach the unreachable and help deliver better medical care to the people of Himalayan region where there is inadequate medical care. It aims to serve as a platform for meeting, interaction, discussion, planning and execution of healthcare programmes in the Himalayan region.
Health care in the Himalayan region is insufficient and many people cannot afford to go out of Ladakh for their medical treatment. Many people residing in remote areas have serious difficulties in accessing healthcare. Most often there are no proper documentation and health records.
We see medical camps being set up, individuals doctors visiting these remote areas, and treating the tribes without documenting the treatment. This becomes close to impossible to later treat the individual as there is no official prescription or documentation of treatment.
To ensure standardization and uniformity we are introducing Health Booklets which allows for a culmination of all medical treatments of an individual to be documented in one Booklet. This acts as a physical database for the individual to later use and refer to whenever needed.
The booklet is being released in collaboration with Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre, Leh Ladakh.
