According to the IDF, diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate in Pakistan. Many of the people suffering from diabetes belong to rural areas with limited access to healthcare. Community outreach programmes such as Health Camps are an effective measure to reach out to such patients.

Since its formation, AIMS-PK has held community clinics at the doorsteps of the poor and has remained a hallmark of its activities. During the year 2015, AIMS PK has been running 2-5 community clinics per month in various districts of KPK and thus played a pivotal role in providing medical care to patients with Diabetes. These camps provide three useful services to communities in the far-flung areas of KPK:

  1. Free diagnostic services to potential patients with diabetes, free check-up by a qualified physician, dietician’s advice and free insulin as well as other medicines.
  2. Referral of patients with Diabetes and linking them up with local healthcare facilities.
  3. Disseminations of health information regarding communicable and non-communicable disease in the form of pamphlets in Urdu and brief sessions with local people.

In 2015, 5500 patients have been provided with free services via camps, while a total of 6840 people have benefitted from diagnostic facilities. Awareness raising activities resulted in dissemination of information to roughly 10,000 people in 2015.

Diabetes Screening camps are conducted each month in different districts of the KP at remote locations. Click here to see our Health Camps Album.
