Most rural men and women are hard workers in the agricultural sector and may not be able to afford healthcare due to high cost, and appropriate health services may not be available or accessible by them. There is also a lack of awareness about Diabetes Care in rural area.
To address this situation, Chellaram Diabetes Institute (CDI) launched its ambitious Outreach Program through Mobile Diabetes Clinics, on the 26th September 2012 from village Shiroli Khurd of Maharashtra, India.
The program is a philanthropic initiative of CDI for the under privileged people of the rural area of Pune district. It involves taking the Mobile Clinic to the villagers door step for the purpose of – Patient Care, Education and Awareness – for Diabetes & its Complications.
CDI’s Out Patient Clinic at Pune is responsible for the co-ordination and planning of the Outreach Programme.
