Preventive care: Immunization camp

Bella Health is dedicated to provide its target area with all preventive care measure. In order to enable every child to grow healthy and free from all diseases we have been providing them with vaccination for MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella), Typhoid and Hepatitis B. Bella organises Immunization each month to make sure to reach out to maximum children from our target areas.

 

Primary Care :

We provide wide range of services to make sure that our beneficiaries have access to all required health care services. These services include :-

 

Reproductive Health:

Reproductive health is defined as the ability of a woman to live through the reproductive years and beyond with reproductive choice, dignity and successful childbearing, and to be free of gynecological disease and risk. Reproductive choice is a concept that allows a woman to exert control of her reproductive process and dignity refers to the social and psychological wellbeing woman derives from the process of reproduction. A woman’s health is not only a state of physical being, but it is an expression of the many roles she performs as a wife, mother, care-giver and wage earner, as well as her interaction with the social, cultural and economic world which influences her daily life.

Our innovation is to bring high quality reproductive health care services to these underserved and impoverished slums and rural villages using our state of the art diagnostic mobile health center. Health care services are provided at the doorstep by dedicated and highly skilled staff . The van is staffed with 1 doctor, 3 nurses, 3 educational specialists, 1 pharmacist and support staff. All service delivery sites are fully equipped to perform pelvic exams, draw labs, conduct screenings, and dispense medicines. We follow a schedule and visit each village alternate weeks which lets us visit each village two times per month. We see patients from 10:00 until 4pm. The patients know that we are visiting their village because we have a consistent schedule and also utilize ASHA workers to convey the message of our arrival. Once the ambulance is parked, patients arrive. We see approximately 40 to 80 patients in one day. As we register the patients we take a complete health, pregnancy and family history and check vital signs. Then the doctors and nurses see the patients. We have the latest diagnostic equipment including fetal heart monitor, rapid tests for pregnancy, blood glucose, hemoglobin, UA, blood type, Rh, syphilis, HIV, malaria, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. These rapid tests allow our doctors to diagnose and subsequently treat on the spot. We give the patient enough medicines to last 2 weeks or until we return.

 

The Problem

Quality and affordable reproductive health services are non-existent in our target communities which leads to poor health outcomes. Lack of health awareness leads to poor health outcomes and health education is practically nill within the communities we serve. There are many misconceptions concerning reproductive health and it is often seen as a taboo topic. The confluence of lack of services and misconceptions/lack of awareness in these communities leave the population vulnerable to greater morbidity and mortality from preventable causes, particularly in regards to reproductive health. In India, 1 woman is dying every 2 hours from unsafe abortions, even though India has one of the most liberal Medical Termination of Pregnancy laws. Unsafe abortions continue to outweigh safe abortions. Within our communities many women seek unsafe methods of abortion due to lack of access and lack of education, putting their lives and health at risk. Reproductory Tract Infections  are rampant causing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and in some cases infertility. Reproductory Tract Infections causing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease are seen in adolescents- even before they are sexually active and are seen in the majority of women after they deliver or undergo an abortion.
