GRECALTES is a care giver for mother and child equation who build, develop and transform the nation. We conduct several programs and events for their welfare.
Identifying the diabetic patients women (general and pregnant) is one of the problems that we address in our projects. The slum women in the targeted slum areas in Kolkata have no idea and awareness about diabetes, gestational diabetes and life style changes. They have no access to care and treatment of diabetes.
The pregnant women in the slum areas, ranging from pre-natal to post natal care are deprived of the facility for screening of gestational diabetes. Their access to the treatment for the safe delivery of the babies are negligible due to their ignorance and illiteracy.
It is noteworthy that as far as TB is concerned GRECALTES have detected 1386 Female Cases. A total of 129 child cases identified. Thus to round up the estimated figure stands at 1515, together with female and child cases up to the year 2022.
Since 1975 we have been working for eradication of leprosy among the marginalised population . So far we have detected 4341 female leprosy affected patients and 2849 leprosy affected children.
