In a ground-breaking achievement, Maharashtra’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Bhairavnath Sugar Industries, and the RK HIV AIDS Research and Care Centre, set a Guinness World Record by organizing a free medical camp for over 1.1 million patients.
Coinciding with the Vishnu Pooja Festival, the medical camp emerged as a testament to the value of collaboration in healthcare. In India, where the World Bank reported just 2.4 doctors per 1,000 people in 2020, the camp signifies a monumental step towards ensuring accessible and quality healthcare for all.
Key to this successful initiative was Dr. Dharmendra Kumar, who has a history of organizing over 29,000 medical camps, benefiting more than 35 million individuals. His dedication is a potent reminder of the positive change committed individuals can bring to public health.
