Janki devi, a resident of Bhagichora village in Pithoragarh, has been suffering from dermatitis since four years now with no visible improvement despite taking several treatments from traditional quacks. She had initially visited the local primary health center, but the center gradually became non-functional and she had to discontinue her visits. As a result, the infection was never cured.
After visiting the Wockhardt Foundation- THF Mobile Medical Unit in Pithoragarh, she followed the free of cost course of medicines and treatment on a regular basis and the infection is healing with time. She now visits the van for all minor to major ailments when in need and refers the services of the van to family and friends.

In addition to prescribed medications, the van team has also been providing awareness and advocacy services to the family on sanitary and hygienic practices at home.
