We saw 142 patients today. Turnout complicated by harvest which is very much in effect. So we had a tractor visiting people in the filed and then a baby taxi would take them to our clinic so they could get back to work.
Every person has gum disease and poor hygiene. They gave many referrals to dentists for cleaning. They estimate from experience that only 20-30% will follow up.
We had a female dentist and a female gynecologist. All the doctors came from Jaipur.
Organizing made much easier by support of NGO which organized most of doctors and medications. Dentists we hired directly. Logistics always an issue in such a setting.
Van with doctors was an hour late because of cattle on the road!
Just a reminder… There is no cost of any kind to the individuals served.
