It is getting a bit too difficult to post blogs at the moment but I thought I would share some pictures with everyone about what I have been up to.
Overlooking the beautiful city that is Udaipur, the white city.
Jagran Jan Vikas Samiti is a Non-Government Organization based in Udaipur. Their focus is traditional medicine and agricultural sustainability. This is the GTTC (Guni Training come Treatment Centre) building. A project recently completed by JJVS.
We get a lot if confronting cases each day, particularly in the villages where access to health care can be expensive and inacessable. Cysts, malnutrition, lypomas with excess blood supply, TB and polio.
A 16 month old girl with Jericho Ulcers (Cutaneous leishmaniasis). Often under diagnosed or even misdiagnosed as Impetigo. Is a very common condition in remote India. It is a parasitic infection which transmitted to human skin by the bite of a remote India, consider cutaneous leishmaniasis. common there. Paromomycin is the most important effective form of treatment but unavailable in the village where we encountered this little gurl. Neem oil and anti septic cream was used to clean up the wounds and prevent a staph infection. Then a prescription of paromomycin was given so the next villager to go to the city can pick it up.
It is not all work. This is our lovely group of 5th year chiropractic students from RMIT, Australia. Grwat sense if humir and a great work ethic, couldn’t ask for more.
Our health camp in the city of Udaipur was based in a conference room if the Tribal Research Institute.
Our write up in one of the local papers. Vicki the chiropractic supervisor gave an interview to the English-speaking newspaper and I to the hindi-speaking one. It certainly got the word out. We went from having 120 patients a day to 300 patients! Great news for JJVS and the Tribal Research Institute.
