Voices from the Ground

“Prathima, a CHW helped me stop alcohol consumption. During BCC, she told me the disadvantages of consuming alcohol for a diabetic patient. Slowly I tried and reduced alcohol consumption and now I am not drinking and feel healthy.”

Basavachari (Diabetic Patient, Hebbal 1st stage, Mysore)

“Being diabetic, I was worried about buying medicines every month. I was surprised to know from the health worker that UPHCs provide medicines free of cost. Now I am collecting medicines from the Government Hospital and it is a big relief for me. I thank the CHW for the information”

Rihan Jhan (Diabetic Patient, Vidyaranyapuram, Mysore)

During a phone call, a CHW-Supervisor found that a diabetic and hypertensive patient was suffering from urinary tract infection. The CHW-S immediately contacted her husband, who works in the government district hospital. An ambulance was arranged to take the patient to the district hospital. As there was no specialist available in the facility on the day, the patient was shifted to a private nursing home. Since the patient didn’t have money to pay for the treatment, the CHW-S and her husband stepped forward and contributed Rs. 10000 to help the patient. The effort put in by CHWs and CHW-Supervisors during the ongoing lockdown to counsel and help patients in need continue to inspire.
