Karachi, Jan 06: DHA has launched a month long programme of setting up Medical Camps in various Katchi Abadis located in adjoining DHA / Clifton areas for provision of free medical treatment, medicines and diagnostic services for the residents of these areas. Free vaccination / inoculation is also being carried out.

DHA took the erstwhile initiative on the special instructions of Commander 5 Corps Lt Gen Zahirul Islam as a welfare measure for the poor / lower income class inhabitants of Katchi Abadis. The campaign started in Mid December’ 2011 and Medical Camps have already been setup at Hazara Colony, Pak Jamhoria Colony (Kala Pul), Neelum Colony, Shah Rasool Colony, Akhtar Colony and Kashmir Colony etc. More Medical Camps are being setup at Dehli Colony, Punjab Colony and Qayyumabad areas shortly.

Incharge Medical Camps, Dr Sheema Ather said that a large number of patients including women and children from the adjoining areas mostly suffering from common ailments like diabetes, hypertension, asthma, skin diseases, gastro enteritis, respiratory infections, skin diseases and chronic illnesses etc turned up at the Medical Camps. They were given all types of medicines including antibiotics, pain killers, anti allergic, multivitamins, skin ointments and inhalers etc free of cost. Free Eye testing facility was also provided at the camps.

Vaccination through Expanded Programme of Immunization (EPI) was also conducted. Sindh Lab established their investigations setup at the site where blood tests for hemoglobin, random blood sugar, random cholesterol, Hep B and Hep C were conducted free of cost.
