Chevella MP Ranjith Reddy introduces “Arogya Chevella” initiative

Chevella MP G Ranjith Reddy introduced the “Arogya Chevella” initiative, which will bring healthcare to the doorsteps of three lakh people by raising awareness about noncommunicable diseases through mobile medical clinics in the parliamentary constituency.

On the occasion of the Chevella MP’s birthday, Industries Minister KT Rama Rao formally launched the service on Sunday.

The Mobile Medical Clinics will provide free screenings for Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) such as hypertension, diabetes, oral, breast, and cervical cancers, as well as general health check-ups.

‘Arogya Chevella’ aims to raise NCD awareness through Mobile Medical Clinics and collaboration with the local community, Self-Help Groups, and local hospitals for the people of Chevella.

Ranjith Reddy, speaking at the launch event, stated that during the last few years’ health camps, it was discovered that at least 25% of the population was at high risk of NCDs. According to him, the combined burden of infectious diseases and NCDs was significant.

A noble community engagement model was launched as part of the “Arogya Chevella” program to raise awareness about NCDs, particularly diabetes and hypertension. He explained that this would help connect people to local government health systems for early diagnosis and treatment.

Screening tests will be carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the National Program for the Prevention of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Strokes (NPCDCS). People between the ages of 30 and 65 may be eligible for benefits under the service.

In reaching out to communities in remote areas, the mobile clinic is a critical component of the program for easy screening and primary intervention with all necessary safety and health protocols. It would also allow for the identification of those with NCDs who appear to be in good health and may be unaware of the disease.
