More Than 900 Patients Screened at IHHN’s Mobile Clinic

In an effort to provide maximum relief to the victims of flooding in Uthal, Balochistan, IHHN teams treated more than 400 people in OPDs on the third day, taking the toll to 900 in three days, at the medical camp jointly set up with Karachi Relief Trust (KRT). The diseases that appeared during the checkups were Urinary Tract Infections, Respiratory Tract Infections, Acute Gastroenteritis, Nutrient Deficiencies like iron, calcium and vitamin D, Renal Colic, Hypertension, Malnutrition among children, Skin infections like folliculitis, scabies, fungal infections, Common problems of pregnancy and Muscular pain (back and knee) issues. Suspected patients of TB and Diabetes were also screened. Community awareness sessions were also conducted on skin diseases, family planning and health hygiene.

Due to lack of health facilities present at the region especially the abandoned and non-functional District Headquarter Hospital (DHQ), Uthal, IHHN and KRT had to come forward to support the Government and provide quality healthcare services to the flood affectees.
