Named after the party, the clinic provides free general primary and preventive healthcare services and will be operational from Monday.
Set up by AAP volunteers, the clinic will function on support and donations from volunteers and supporters of the party. The Aam Aadmi Clinic Trust is a nonprofit organization registered in Bengaluru by five party volunteers.
Just like Delhi’s Mohalla Clinics, the Aam Aadmi Clinic will provide services such as clinical consultation and medicines including oral antidiabetic, anti-hypertensives, antibiotics, analgesics and others free of cost, besides free diagnostic tests. The clinic will pay for all the tests, but will not charge patients a single paise.
Due to the pandemic, general health services have taken a huge hit in the city and AAP seeks to bridge this gap through its clinic.
AAP volunteers said they have conducted medical camps in four communities in Shantinagar assembly constituency. “We have treated more than 400 patients through the camps, and during the pandemic, with the help of generous donors, we have been able to supply medicines for patients with chronic diseases,” party workers said.
