Students Health Care Program

Knowledge is important, but health is essential.
All children at C & F schools are regularly examined every four weeks.
Dr. Gupta, a medical doctor hired specifically to work in our schools, has been working for C & F since 2000.

He checks the children’s throats and teeth, and listens to their chests.
Every young patient has their own health card on which all of the findings from the exams are documented.

Dr. Gupta treats minor ailments and illnesses immediately. He frequently applies bandages, for example when children injure themselves while playing outside. In the event of more serious conditions, the children are transferred to a C & F clinic for further treatment.

Dr. Gupta also teaches the students basic information about hygiene and common illnesses. After all, health education is one of the best ways to prevent disease. In this case, knowledge and health go hand in Hand.
