The underprivileged and the slum dwellers in India continue to have poor access to basic determinants of good health as well as to the curative services from government sources during illness as the masses are indifferent or not aware of the various medical schemes and benefits available to them. ‘Swasth Zindagi’ by RK HIV AIDS is one step towards this cause. All major diseases will be covered at the medical camp like kidney or liver ailments, ENT ailments, HIV, cancer, heart ailments etc.,” he explained.

Over the past five years, R K HIV has successfully conducted 7971 medical camps in which over 37,71,578 patients were screened in states like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, MP, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Rajasthan, Orissa. A cross-sectional survey in an urban slum and surrounding rural areas was conducted to understand the various health hazards affecting the key socio-demographic patterns and the precautionary measures and actions taken if any by the class.
