Early Detection Medical Camp

Leprosy is curable with early detection and treatment with Multi-Drug Therapy(MDT). On 23.09.2022 Karuna Project conducted an Early Detection Medical Camp at Vajreshwari Primary Health Center. Out of the 25 odd patients that were screened 24 were treated for skin infections and patches, however, one person tested positive. For one and half years he avoided visiting a doctor, last week he was encouraged by an Asha Worker to attend the Karuna Medical Camp, he came and he tested positive. He is now put on Multi-Drug Therapy. Although he has Type 1 Leprosy with the treatment we expect him to be cured. The Team will continue to follow up and monitor his recovery.
Your giving towards the work of the Karuna Project would help conduct many more Medical Camps and save many lives from leprosy and its devastating effect on a person’s body.
