RNAIPL Mobile Medical Van Initiative Reaches 15,000 Beneficiaries, Reinforcing Commitment to Community Health


Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt Ltd (RNAIPL) concluded its Mobile Medical Van initiative for 2023, providing healthcare access to 20 villages in Chengalpattu district.

Staffed by a doctor and two nurses, the van offered free medical check-ups and essential follow-up care at people's doorsteps, addressing the healthcare needs of villages with limited access to medical facilities.

Operating from January to October 2023, RNAIPL's Mobile Medical Van provided free medical consultation and first-level treatment to nearly 15,000 beneficiaries. The van visited each of the 20 villages at least once every month, conducting 180 trips throughout the year from Monday to Friday, ensuring consistent healthcare support.

Common conditions diagnosed and treated included fever, myalgia, upper and lower respiratory tract infections, and dermatological conditions. Patients with conditions requiring further treatment were referred to government primary health centres in nearby districts.

Keerthi Prakash, Managing Director of RNAIPL, said that the company’s Mobile Medical Van initiative is a small step to make quality healthcare more accessible to the communities near the plant.

The Mobile Medical Van initiative was first launched in 2021 during the COVID-19 crisis, supporting over 20,000 beneficiaries across 40 villages in Kanchipuram district. Beyond medical check-ups, the van also provides guidance on essential health matters such as vaccination, dengue prevention, anemia management, menstrual hygiene, diabetes care, hypertension management, and general health tips to foster a culture of health consciousness.
