Uluru Health Care Centre (UHCC)

For those in rural India, health care is often inaccessible or, in the rare localities that it is accessible, too expensive for many. TEWFI redressed this issue in the Alamparai district of Tamil Nadu with the establishment of the Uluru Health Care Centre. Since 1998, The Uluru Health Care Centre has run a free primary health care service for more than 26,000 people around Alamparai. The only service of its kind in the region, the Centre is staffed by a doctor and nursing staff from the local area, as well as several community social workers.

Over 26,000 people now have access to medical care of good quality, at a nominal cost. This allows for them to be treated for diseases and conditions for which they would have no other means of treatment. The DOTS treatment for tuberculosis is part of UHCC’s activities, conducted in conjunction with the Tamil Nadu Government. Preventative medicine schemes are run at UHCC. These include early detection of diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and health messages given by doctors and nurses via various audiovisual aids.

The Uluru Health Care Centre provides a basic service. In the event that further, specialist, attention is required, patients are referred to Pondicherry. This is particularly the case for many of the aged. Twice-weekly trips are made by the Uluru Ambulance from Alamparai to Pondicherry.
The important Post Tsunami Health Care and Research Project (PTHCRP) is also run under the auspices of the UHCC.
