HMIF flagged off its first ‘Mobile Chikitsa’ unit to Laxmangarh block of Alwar district in Rajasthan in January 2021. ‘Mobile Chikitsa’ is currently aimed at catering to a community of up to 25,000 people and if a need arises, it can service up to 3 additional communities. A qualified MBBS doctor is on board that provides free consultation and medicines through the attached pharmacy. Hyundai’s Mobile Chikitsa unit is also equipped with testing facilities for spot diagnostic tests covering blood sugar, BP, Malaria, Dengue etc. In addition, awareness programs about different diseases and their prevention are also being conducted through this van.

Coming back to the film that is shot in the Laxmangarh block of Alwar, Rajasthan, all characters are local residents of the village. In the film, a lifesaving Indian Medicinal plant ‘Sanjeevani’ plays the role of a story-teller. Sanjeevani says that the medical van is taking its legacy forward as it reaches out to the hinterlands and relentlessly serves people and communities at large. Under the project – ‘Sparsh Sanjeevani’, the Mobile Chikitsa medical van is managed by HMIF and its partner NGO ‘Wockhardt’ with an initial goal of reaching 16 villages.
