Dr. Amit (name changed) is a busy private practitioner in the Kumbarakoppalu urban neighbourhood of Mysore. Being a primary health care provider, higher footfalls and demand for services at his clinic reflect his strong skills, dedication and rapport with the community.
Since last few months, KHPT observed improved results through the involvement of primary care private doctors like Dr. Amit for provision of effective NCD care by the NCD team of KHPT. While project staff follow-up with his patients in the community and ensure that they regularly visit his clinic to access timely services, Dr. Amit, in turn, ensures that such patients get diagnostic services free of cost, by referring them to the UPHC.
