Mercy Mission’s approach encompasses four key elements focused on addressing intractable and neglected healthcare conditions:

1-Access to primary health care- Free consultations services (doctors/ nurse/ medical professionals/counselors) for children and women who needs care.
Organizing medical camps in low income area community schools operated by NGOs in Delhi & NCR region who needs medical support for their children & their parents.
2- Ensuring health and education services are free to the poor -Free medicine supply. Free Hospital care & support with our partner hospitals in New Delhi
3- Improving access to food, shelter, clean water, sanitation& economic opportunities
4- Partnering with local and global organizations, Churches & corporate businesses to scale-up support & medical care for children and women in marginalized communities of the city and NCR area.

Problem:

The Urban population of India is rising with a decadal growth of 31.8% more than double that of rural area.  Out of the total urban population, 23.6% are poor and they suffer from poor health outcomes similar to the rural population. Various eye opening data from National Family Health Survey (NHFS) clearly indicate that access to healthcare still remains a challenge. The health status and access to health for the poor in urban slums continue to be poor & deplorable.

Factors responsible:

* Includes limited access for healthcare, poor access to safe water supply and sanitation, over-crowding, poor housing, inability to afford healthcare, lack of education & thus lack of awareness etc.
Children are affected the most with skin diseases, malaria, eye diseases mainly conjunctivitis. More than 50% of the malnourished children did not have access to clean drinking water and defecated in the open, leading to frequent bouts of water-borne diseases such as diarrhea.
* Another factor is also due to their unwillingness to lose a day’s wage in order to reach the nearest medical facility. As a result, cases of poor women health, malnourishment in children and deaths from preventable diseases from such areas are always high.
The neglect in even the simplest preventive medical treatment usually leads to a more serious ailment and eventually into deaths. The need of the hour is to support the poor communities by bringing quality health care services to their doorsteps and to promote healthcare awareness and contemporary health care seeking behavior among the underprivileged.

At TejasAsia, we believe mobile health care service delivery system is one of the most practical mechanisms to tackle this problem. TejasAsia has launched a unique mobile hospital program ‘Mercy Mission’ that seeks to address problems of mobility, accessibility and availability of primary health care with a special focus on children and women in urban slums and remote rural areas. The mobile clinic use modern, state-of-the-art audio-visual aids for spreading awareness about health issues in the community. With a team, which consists of – a Project Coordinator, Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacist, Driver and a Community Mobilizer, the mobile hospital is set out for operation.

The objective of the program is to ensure improved health services reaching the doorsteps of people residing in un-served or underserved communities in and around the city.
