The camp was conducted among primary school children where23 children of 3-12 years were benefited. It was found that most of the children were suffered from common cold, diarrheal diseases, and toothache. One of the children was found severe sick with high fever. Children were provided free treatment. Also they were taught about basic hygiene and sanitation. All school children were provided tooth brushes to continue teeth brushing. In this campaign there were 5 public from same village to get health check up.

VIN, under Community health and Medical care project, has been conducting School health program regularly at Jitpur.
