Health care Program



Over View

NLMET has a strategy of providing ‘holistic’ care to the beneficiaries of our various programs. The high cost of private medical care and the lack of basic quality norms in care and facilities in the government run programs expose the marginalised to inadequate provision of basic medical services. Many poor people are unable to access the free government services that are meant to assist them. These services are often denied them or ‘delayed’ which has a significant impact of their worsening heath.

NLMET runs different free health check up camps around the city for the marginalise communities, both in existing areas of intervention and new areas where we currently have no other intervention program.

A regular dental check up and treatment is provided to the children in the slums, HIV/AIDS awareness programs are held in the community where no current facilities are available.

The Need

The health care program benefits children and poor people who are marginalized and underprivileged. They are unable to access quality care and medication.

The work:

As part of our current dental care program we have been able to check around 1723 children from 58 different locations, during these preliminary diagnostic visits children were taught dental hygiene and free tooth brushes and tooth pastes were handed to them, out of these children 1048 will need regular dental care to restore their dental health to a normal level, we have moved on to the treatment phase where around 285 children have received dental treatment that compromises of extractions, cavity fillings with silver compound or cement. Free medication is also given out during these treatment sessions. The treatment is made available to members of the community.

In the various medical camps that are conducted thousands of people are checked and free medication is handed out for various diseases.
