Smile Foundation, in collaboration with the Government of Haryana (District Administration) and SBI Cards & Payment Services Ltd., has successfully established 10 E-Arogya Clinics at the Health and Wellness centers in Nuh. These clinics consist of Tele-Medicine kiosks equipped with Medicine Vending Machines (MVM). The primary objective of this initiative is to enhance community health in Nuh by adopting a comprehensive approach.
These 10 E-Arogya clinics cater to a population of 1 million people and serve the 8 Primary Health Centers across 4 blocks in the Nuh district. The Smile Foundation, with support from SBI Cards and Payment Services, provides the services of both general practitioners and specialist doctors, free distribution of medicines, and NCD (Non-Communicable Disease) screening at the E-Arogya Clinics located in the Health and Wellness Centers of Nuh. Additionally, the initiative includes capacity building programs for frontline workers, with training sessions organized as per the requirements in consultation with the district health administration. The E-Arogya clinics maintain electronic health records of patients and monitor the prevalence of non-communicable diseases.
By reinforcing the existing government interventions, this project strengthens the health system and emphasizes the sustainability of services in the area. In line with the holistic approach to improve community health, the establishment of telemedicine centers (E-Arogya clinics) is complemented by the training of frontline workers and the promotion of health awareness within the community. These components are critical aspects of the project and contribute to the overall betterment of community health.
