DEEP Gram Clinics- Lack of doctors in the rural areas affects the health of the people in the hinterland. It also has an impact on the health outcomes of the various programs by the government. Accessibility, affordability and accountability are the factors that drive the health sector. Unfortunately the poor functioning of the facilities are evident by the poor numbers of the health indicators like MMR, IMR, U5MR etc. Deep Trust works along side the government health sector by actively engaging the informal health workers like the RMP,s etc, who dot the rural landscape as they are the first point of contact for many a rural health care needs.
DEEP is in the forefront of assisting organizations to help serve their members and their employees to take care of themselves and in turn their families. DEEP in collaboration with the Andhra Pradesh police proactively screened the entire police force of the Vijayawada for detecting, educating and referring the police for their healthcare needs. These preventive camps are comprehensive in nature and shed light on the benefits of preventive care with the results being analyzed for the early detection. DEEP then helps the organization institute measures that reduces their spend on the healthcare of their employees.
