Mobile Health Scheme

Introduction

Introduction: Many slum-dwellers have no access to local hospitals or clinics so they compromise themselves, degrading their health and overall life. To address this situation ADF started MHS which provides health services at their doorstep. Through MHS, ADF is reaching the unreached and making health care accessible to the underprivileged people
Health care is expensive, so it is easy to see that the poor and really needy people are the worst sufferers as they are hardly in a position to pay for it. ADF endeavours to address this need of the deprived group to the extent possible within the means at its command.
