Medkhidmat 83rd Free Medical Camp

Golra Sharif ISLAMABAD

The 83rd Free Medical Camp was arranged by Team Medkhidmat of Acts of Kindness Pakistan on Sunday, 23rd October 2022 at Golra Sharif which is situated near the Margalla Hills in the Islamabad Capital Territory, Pakistan. It is known for the Mausoleum of Meher Ali Shah which yearly attracts thousands of devotees.

Freed Medical camps by Acts of Kindness provide free medical advice, medicine and free laboratory tests to unfortunate people and refer them for specialized treatment or surgery whenever it is required. These camps make sure people are getting healthcare at the right time, and seeing the doctor early enough before a small health problem turns serious. A team of 25+ doctors, paramedical staff and students from different medical colleges participated in the camp. The camp provided free medical consultations and free medicines to the patients. Roundabout 450 patients were treated during the camp.

Breast Cancer awareness sessions and Dengue Awareness sessions were also arranged there.

In Pakistan, the number of breast cancer cases is rising at an alarming rate. According to a recent study, breast cancer is now the most common cancer in Pakistani women. The good news is that there are ways to prevent and treat this disease.

One way to prevent breast cancer is to get regular check-ups and screenings. Another way to prevent breast cancer is to lead a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, and avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol use.

If you or someone you know has breast cancer, there are treatment options available. These include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy.

The best way to fight breast cancer is to prevent it in the first place. But if you or a loved one has already been diagnosed with breast cancer, know that there is hope and help available.

According to World Health Organization, Dengue is a viral infection transmitted by mosquitoes caused by four types of dengue virus (DENV 1, DENV 2, DENV 3, DENV 4). Infection with one serotype provides long-term immunity to the homologous serotype, but not to other serotypes; sequential infections put people at greater risk of severe dengue. DENV can cause an acute flu-like illness, many DENV infections produce only mild illness; over 80% of cases are asymptomatic.

There is no specific treatment for dengue, however, timely detection of cases, identifying any warning signs of severe dengue infection, and appropriate case management are key elements of care to prevent patient death and can lower fatality rates of severe infection to below 1%.

Dengue fever is endemic in Pakistan, with seasonal outbreaks and the circulation of the four serotypes in different areas of the country. Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus are widely adapted vectors for urban and peri-urban environments. As dengue is recurrent in the country, the population may be at risk of re-infection and therefore, serious complications may occur if not managed promptly and correctly.

The camp started at 10:00 am and ended at 04:00 pm.
