Frequent and high Healthcare costs are one of the key reasons why poor people at the borderline fall into poverty and are unable to escape it. They are forced to spend a significant amount of their savings or fall into debt to pay for rising healthcare bills.

In order to enable preventive healthcare, we at Lifeline have found that medical camps help in identification of diseases and health problems early and bring down the cost and time of treatment. Therefore, mobilization of patients, marketing & communication about the camp, logistics support during the camp etc. The health camp has been focusing on testing, detention and treatment for acute illness along with provision of free medicines(Discounted up to 75%). Basic critical diagnostic tests have also commenced recently at huge discount.

From Jan 2018 – Mar 2023, We have conducted 114 Medical Camps covering 13,655 free consultations. Lifeline has spent INR 20.2 Lakhs on these medical camps and led to an estimated savings of more than INR 70 Lakhs on behalf of the patients.

We are currently conducting general camps in three locations each month in a fixed timeframe– Gurappanapalya (2nd Sunday), Govindpura (1st Sunday), and Kalasipalyam (3rd Saturday). Patients hailing from these areas visit our camps monthly and belong to urban slums.
