The Mobile Health Unit of HelpAge was very effective during the Covid-19 pandemic where the vulnerable population, particularly the elderly with chronic conditions in and around Avadi and Ambattur, were able to get treated and provided with medicines. 98.4% of the beneficiaries visited the MHU during the lockdown. 69.1% of the beneficiaries have been receiving treatment at MHU for over 2 years.
It has been 6 years since we first started this project. Presently we find that the Health care facilities in and around Avadi & Ambattur belt has considerably improved. Hence, we would like to discontinue this project and focus on other long term and socially more impactful projects.
The Indian Institute of Technology – Madras, Civil Engineering Department collaborated with Chengalpattu Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) in Tamil Nadu design and developed a ‘Doffing Unit’ to enable healthcare professionals to safely and effectively remove their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
The entire collaboration took place remotely during the lockdown period during the month of April 2020. Several versions of the design were generated and reviewed before the team finalised the version for fabrication. District officials also coordinated with the team to enable the fabrication and safe transportation of the Unit to operational location at CMCH. The units were commissioned by Chengalpattu District Collector, Mr. John Louis on May 6, 2020. Given the pandemic situation, the Doffing Unit has proven to be critical support at the right time for the safe and effective disposal of PPE’s at CMCH.
