The condition of the primary health centres in the peri urban regions of Howrah district are in dwindling condition. In order to avail health care facilities, the community has to travel a long distance to come to the Howrah Government Hospital. 90% of the community lives on a daily wage and belongs to an unorganised labour sector, which means to avail health services by traveling long distance is to lose their day's income. As a result the community refrains from availing the medical care and relies more on local quaks to address their health problems. This in the long run negatively affects the health situation, as unprofessional health service brings more ill-health within the society, thus reducing the productivity of the whole population. DITO's intervention to break the vicious cycle of ill health by making health care available at the doorstep of the community by plying a state of the art Mobile Medical Van at the proximity and thus will address the health issues of the population in a more effective way.
