Hyundai Motor India Foundation, the philanthropic and CSR arm of Hyundai Motor India Ltd. has commenced their first health initiative Mobile Chikitsa under their public health programme ‘Sparsh Sanjeevani’ to bolster India’s healthcare services in rural neighbourhoods.

What is Mobile Chikitsa?

Mobile Chikitsa is a mobile primary healthcare clinic with doctor on board and equipped with testing facilities for spot diagnostic tests. The medical unit of Mobile Chikitsa was flagged-off for Laxmangarh, a tehsil in Alwar district of Rajasthan, in the presence of S.S Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. and senior CSR officials of HMIF.
S.S Kim said, “Hyundai global vision of ‘Progress for Humanity’ reiterates our aim to drive sustainable change in communities across the globe. ‘Mobile Chikitsa’ under our public health initiative ‘Sparsh Sanjeevani’, will strengthen the accessibility of healthcare services in the most vulnerable communities of rural India. We hope to augment the Government of India’s programmes of reforming the public healthcare system and advance the country’s pursuit of health and wellness for all.”

How will Mobile Chikitsa work?

Aligned with Government of India’s Ayushman Bharat Yojana, the project will cater to a community of up to 25000 people and if need be can service up to 3 additional communities. A qualified MBBS doctor onboard will provide free consultation and medicines through the attached pharmacy. The Mobile Chikitsa unit is equipped with testing facilities for spot diagnostic tests covering blood sugar, BP, Malaria, Dengue etc. They will not provide any routine vaccinations. Parallelly, awareness programmes about different diseases and their prevention will also be conducted.
The unit will cover 2 villages per day through a fixed roster and service around 100 patients. Patients will be provided with a health card to record their case history and individuals diagnosed with serious ailments will be referred to the nearest government or private hospital. The unit will service areas where there are no healthcare facilities. The van will cover the villages of Lili, Raipur Jat, Jawli, Toda, Hasanpur, Mundjori, Tilakpur, Ucchar, Narnol, Gor Pahari, Deewli, Manjpta, Semla, Berla Bass, Kajota and Kanwara. The initiative will be expanded in a phased manner in other parts of Rajasthan and in select areas across the country.
