Health camps for Bajura

Bajura, December 6

District Health Office, Bajura, has been running health camp services in the far-flung areas of the district at least once a month.

Public Health Officer and Information Officer Ramesh Kunwar said the DHO had been running health camps for the last six months by deploying teams of health workers in the remote areas of the district.

Dr Rup Chandra Bishowakarma at the office said health workers’ teams reached Bahrabisa, Kuldevmandau, Dogadi, Kailashmandau and Manakot and provided basic health services to locals. “Specialist doctors were available in the health camps,” he added.

District Health Office, Bajura, stated that specialist doctors were made available keeping in view that the poor people of the district could not afford expenses of medical service and could not go to heath facilities for different reasons.

Dr Rohit Giri said the health workers’ team treated a good number of patients in villages. “We refer patients if treatment is not possible in the district,” he said. Dr Giri said the doctors’ team carried out regular check-up of patients and provided video x-ray service at health camps for pregnant women.

A local, Man Devi Budha, from Tribeni Municipality, who is seven months pregnant, said she received health service after doctors’ team reached the village. “Had they not come to the village, I would have never known about the condition of my foetus,” she said.

Staff Nurse Sushila Singh said 97 pregnant women came to the health camps for video x-ray. She further said many patients benefited from health camps organised by the District Health Office.
