From 18 till 24 July 2020, a total of 44.26 lakh people have benefitted from the health and wellness services being provided by AB-HWCs.

The cumulative total footfall among the HWCs since their inception (i.e.14 April 2018) consequently rose to 1,923.93 lakh.

A total of 32,000 yoga sessions were conducted in AB-HWCs all across India. A total of 14.24 lakh yoga sessions have been conducted by HWCs since their inception.

Apart from this, HWCs are also conducting mass screening for non-communicable diseases.

In the last week alone, 3.83 lakh individuals were screened for hypertension, 3.14 lakh for diabetes, 1.15 lakh for oral cancer, 45,000 for breast cancer and 36,000 for cervical cancer.

Since their inception, HWCs have tested a total of 4.72 crore individuals for hypertension, 3.14 crore for diabetes, 2.43 crore for oral cancer, 1.37 crore for breast cancer and 91.32 lakh for cervical cancer.

AB-HWCs population-based screenings for non-communicable diseases have provided the state health authorities a list of those with chronic diseases and the vulnerable co-morbid population which has to be protected from COVID-19 on priority.

Immunisation sessions have been organised by the HWC teams where medical checkups of pregnant women are ensured, apart from the delivery of essential medicines to TB, leprosy, hypertensive and diabetic patients.
