Medical Ambulance Project
Primary Healthcare is one of the utmost necessities for everyone. Still, there is a lack of access to Primary Healthcare facilities in many rural areas in India or if it is there it is expensive. To alleviate the need in the needy segment, New Holland Agriculture wishes to provide primary healthcare facility to the rural community through a mobile ambulance. This way it can reach masses and at their doorstep.
With this aim, Medical Ambulance services have been started in Greater Noida Area from Monday to Friday with the objective of providing primary health care services to underprivileged in the identified slums / villages of Greater Noida, promote preventive measures to improve health seeking behaviour, develop linkages with nearby Government Health Institution / Private clinics / Nursing homes / Health Centres for referral services.
The ambulance is equipped with first aid kits, Preliminary diagnostic kits and basic medicines along with a Doctor, Nurse/Lab Technician and Ambulance Driver. So far 4500 patients have been benefitted by the ambulance from March 2016 to May 2016.
