CF supported FPAI with a Scanning Machine for their in-house Scanning Centre. This hospital provides a range of diagnostics scans for women at subsidized rates. CF also extended its support to purchase an ambulance to reach rural people for health services like check- up of pregnant women in remote villages (located 20 to 50 kms from Bellary) where there are no medical facilities.
FPAI is a national level Nongovernmental organization working in the areas of sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS. It has 41 Branches all over India with Mumbai being their headquarters. Bellary Branch functions based on the funds partly donated by IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation- London) along with locally generated donations.
FPAI, Bellary Branch has been serving the poor, marginalized and underserved people since 1973. It has its own hospital building, constructed with public donations, which houses one well equipped operation theatre and a pathological laboratory. The hospital offers family planning and gynecological related medical and surgical services to the community.
With the in-house Scanning facility, the hospital will be able to provide a range of diagnostic services for women, at subsidized rates. The provision of the in-house Scanning facility is expected to benefit about 1000 to 1500 patients annually.
