The Smile on Wheels mobile hospital project in Delhi-NCR, being supported by IGL, has been successfully conducting first-aid training, health awareness and counseling sessions for auto-rickshaw & cab drivers, besides providing them with doorstep preventive and curative healthcare services.
These drivers are usually the sole bread winners in the family and stay away from regular healthcare or even awareness owing to the nature of their work. The mobile hospital visits designated CNG gas stations in Delhi NCR that are frequented by such drivers.
Equipping them to handle emergency situations, the first aid training covers all general road accident scenarios. Anger management, drug and alcohol addiction, hypertension and STDs are some of the main subjects on which the drivers are counseled.
