JCI Kirtipur celebrated International Women’s Day with "Women’s Health Camp". Program was organized by Women Empowerment Centre Kirtipur with co-organizers JCI Kirtipur and GOSON (Gynecological Oncology Society of Nepal) on 7th of March 2020. Program lasted from 9.30 AM till 1 PM and about 60 participants came for free health checkup. The health camp service was provided by Dr Archana Baidhya (President of GOSON and working at Norvic International Hospital, Thapathali), Dr Shila Varma (Vice president of GOSON and also works at National Cancer Hospital) and Dr Rijuta Joshi Jha (Member of GOSON and also works at Prashuti ghriha, Thapathali).
The women were checked for gynecology and cancer related issues which women are prone to have. For further treatment, some of the ladies were called for follow up. Program was followed by tea and snacks which were provided to patients and lunch was provided for doctors and organizers. Sponsoring this event was Chandragiri Municipality and Pushpasadan Boarding School.
All and all, the program was successful with satisfying number of participants and some of the patients were further referred for follow up because they had the symptoms or certain diseases. We worked on registration and managing the health camp and made the program a success.
