Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra: Bringing Healthcare to the Heights of Itchoo

As part of the ongoing Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, a health camp was organized by the Block Medical Officer of the Community Health Centre in Sankoo on January 9 at Itchoo.

The objective of the health camp was to tackle health issues, promote preventive healthcare, and offer medical care to those who cannot afford it, showcasing a dedication to providing accessible healthcare for all.

The camp provided a range of health services to the general public of Itchoo, including General OPD services, screening for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD), laboratory facilities, National Tuberculosis Elimination Programme (NTEP) Tuberculosis Awareness, generation of ABHA (Health IDs), creation of Golden Cards, and other health services.

During the health camp, a total of 15 patients received medical attention, with 12 undergoing NCD screening, 12 undergoing laboratory tests, and 02 CB NNAT samples collected for TB screening. An awareness education session on non-communicable diseases (NCD), hypertension, diabetes, and healthy lifestyles was conducted for the participants.

The medical team from CHC Sankoo, led by Block Medical Officer Dr. Ghulam Hussain, undertook an 18-kilometer trek through challenging terrain, taking more than ten hours to reach Itchoo from Shargandic. This arduous journey was undertaken to provide healthcare services to the residents of Itchoo, located at an altitude of 12,760 feet above sea level—one of the remotest and inaccessible villages in the region.

During the program, Dr. Ghulam Hussain briefed the general public about the goals of Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra and highlighted its mission. Participants were also informed about various healthcare schemes available to them. The initiative not only addressed immediate healthcare needs but also emphasized the importance of preventive measures for long-term well-being in this challenging geographic setting.
