In an effort to reach out to villagers residing in remote areas of Tawang District in Arunachal Pradesh, a block health Mela was organised at the Bongkhar circle headquarters.

At least 273 border villagers under Bongkhar circle headquarters, near the Bhutan border, attended the health mela which was inaugurated by Tawang Zilla Parishad Chairperson Leki Gombu on Thursday.

Speaking to the villagers, ZPC Leki Gombu asked them to continue following COVID-19 SOPs issued by the government from time to time, since the threat of a pandemic is yet to be over. Gombu also distributed hand sanitisers and water filters at the Bongkhar health centre and face masks for villagers.

District Medical Officer Dr Wangdi Lama asked ASHA and other health workers to do actual ground level headcount survey to cover 100 percen t vaccination coverage and also create awareness to accept covid-19 vaccination as per protocol if any refusal is there in their respective villages.

At least 273 beneficiaries availed of free health checkups and services of around eight specialities including medicine, gynae, ortho, paediatrician, ENT, ophthalmy and dental. Villagers also availed services of registration for PMJAY, CMAAY and ABHA.
