Medical camp in Pune, May 2016

Written by Aina on . Posted in India, News

Last Thursday 12th May in Pune, Nektarina Non Profit and Zest Youth Movement co-hosted the second respiratory health check up camp in so far this year.

Aware that one of the biggest environmental problems in India is air pollution and the consequent effects that it has in respiratory health, we have been conducting these medical camps in Pune since 2014 and we will continue to do so every 3 months during the rest of 2016.

In this occasion, the event took place at Dr Shama Prasad Mukhrji Udyan Erandawane public garden from 7:30 am until 10:30 am.

Around 80 people attended the health camp. The majority of the beneficiaries were adults above 35 years old, who received a pulmonary function test and a follow up advice session with a doctor to provide them with useful information about respiratory health.

At the previous camp held in January we provided approximately 60 tests and we are looking forward to the next camp where we will hopefully be able to continue increasing our capacity for free evaluation and advice. The next camp will be arranged in a couple of months and dates will be announced when we have confirmed the details.
