Organizing free medical camp for students helps them to get sensitized about health issues. Apart from this it also makes students aware of their health status. It is also a way of informing students about the necessity of adequate nutritious food, clean drinking water, dangers and the risk of environmental pollution. Medicines are distributed as free samples to those students suffering from health issues after providing them with a general check-up.
The medical camps also seek to provide both preventive and curative treatment for those who require special treatment from relevant hospitals and are often funded by medical trusts and NGO’s. Conducting these camps for students also aims at providing free tests for diabetes, blood pressure, hemoglobin etc and also provides counseling for students by trained doctors and specialists. Nowadays a lot of hospitals organize medical camps for students to make them more aware of health issues and diseases in the present scenario.
