JIMS Homoeopathic Medical College | Outreach Services
The fundamentals of healthcare are based on access to quality of healthcare and affordability. With more than 50 percent of population below poverty-line in rural areas face the challenges of access to primary healthcare at an affordable cost. Though the government is doing its best yet due to high patient loads the government hospitals are over burden. Hence to support the government efforts and to serve the local community, JIMS Healthcare has ventured into outreach services.
Our Objective .
Our Objective is to reach-out to the vulnerable populations facing challenges due to poverty, transport, logistics leading to lack of access to healthcare. Due to these factors it is mostly the women and children who face the maximum impact on their health.
To overcome this challenge JIMS reaches-out to approximately 45,000 people through its outreach program.
The Scope of the outreach program is preventive health, health education, consumer awareness, health screening and early detection of illness.
Providing primary healthcare at doorsteps and referral for admission at JIMS for complex health issues.
