On the 2nd of October, a health camp was organized for all the trainees of livelihood training (Magic Bus). It was a general check-up for all and we had Dr. Thomas, Dr. Akhila, and Mancy (nurse).

It was a complete body check-up and the reason this we did was to catch any disease early on, and so that we can be prescribed the right treatment for it. The doctors realized that many were suffering from mild coughs and colds due to the unpredictable weather, it is no surprise.
All being HIV infected with HIV, the doctors looked into the previous health reports, specifically looking into the HB, S/C, CD4, and viral load to know the current status of the student. A detailed question about their overall health was taken to understand the background, and it was realized that many had not met the doctors at the ART center. This helped us to make the students understand the importance of having a regular check-ups as it could prevent many ailments.
The students were very happy as most of their concerns has been addressed and the right treatment was prescribed. Doctors also suggest a few ways to keep oneself fit and healthy. This regular full body check-up has helped diagnose issues and also gives no opportunity for further infections and diseases.
