Financial Assistance For Medicines And Outstation Travel5>
Why we started this program?
We realized the following facts:
Few parents were not coming for scheduled follow ups even after our repeated reminders.
Few children discontinue medication after taking it for some months.
When we went deeper into the reasons and the answers shocked us, poor parents could not manage the travel expenses for follow up visits. Due to high cost of medications, on seeing their child get better after few months, the parents stop buying them as buying costly cardiac medicines for one child leads to compromising on feeding the rest of the family.
