Health Camps is one such special initiative of Smile Foundation to provide healthcare services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized community in remote rural areas and slums through standalone camps. Customized health camps are organized extensively across the country offering comprehensive health services – curative, preventive, promotive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas.
Multi-disciplinary projects include Dental, gynaecological, paediatric, ophthalmology and surgical services etc., whereas other interventions can be general in nature. Duration of Smile Health Camps vary between one day and 15 days with frequencies ranging between a month and a year.
The uniqueness of the model lies in its comprehensive approach where health promotion and prevention are given equal importance while curative care is administered.
