Public health care system is one of the prime concerns of Research Institute of Development and Evaluations (RIDE). RIDE aims at delivering quality integrated healthcare services while addressing the key burden of communicable & non-communicable diseases and problems related to the Maternal, Newborn and Child Healthcare. Priority is assigned to clean drinking water, sanitation, and basic health facilities
In this regard, today RIDE in collaboration with Population Welfare Department (Mehkma Behbood-e-Abadi), Government of Punjab organised a day-long free Medical Camp at Adhwal near Chontra, Rawalpindi. Today’s free medical camp was an attempt to reach out to under privileged people particularly the rural based women having limited access to medical facilities.
About 180 patients from Village Adhwal, Sangral and other adjoining areas were administered and provided medical treatment by Dr. Komal who was representing Population Welfare Department, Rawalpindi. She pointed out that most of the patients were suffering from skin infections, gastroenteritis and other water borne diseases.
At the end of a day long medical camp, Col (retd) Sabur Sulehria, CEO (RIDE) thanked Dr Komal for providing medical assistance to the people of Adhwal and surrounding areas. He also thanked Mr Salim Raza, a local representative of Village Adhwal for providing all out administrative and logistic support to RIDE. CEO (RIDE) hoped that the successful conduct of today’s medical camp may provide an opportunity for future collaboration between RIDE and Population Welfare Department on a long term basis.
