Essential healthcare in remote areas of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Telangana

What We Do

MSF conducts mobile clinics to take primary healthcare to people living in remote villages, who find it extremely difficult to access medical care. Our teams provide free treatment for malaria, respiratory infections, pneumonia and skin diseases among others. The clinics also offer a separate area for women to address needs in reproductive health, where group and individual sessions are conducted on topics such as hygiene, care of newborns and sexually transmitted infections.

  • Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh & Telangana

Longstanding, low-intensity conflict has left large sections of the population of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana without access to healthcare, especially in very remote areas of the states. Medical facilities are few and far between, and in such a scenario even preventable, treatable conditions such as malaria can assume life-threatening proportions.

In 2017

For people with limited or no access to healthcare, MSF continued to conduct mobile clinics to provide primary healthcare in remote villages in south Chhattisgarh, north Andhra Pradesh, and north Telangana. Efforts to raise awareness on relevant health issues continued through interactive presentations on malaria, breastfeeding, use of latrines, general hygiene, HIV/AIDS, scabies and more.
