The State Bank of India (SBI) has donated a fully-equipped mobile medical clinic (MMC) to AmeriCares India, making it the seventh MMC in India. The new MMC will enable AmeriCares India to reach 19 new locations providing approximately 20,000 consultations annually. The team received the MMC from Abhijit Guhathakurta, Chief General Manager (Corporate Banking), SBI with board members and bank officials present.
“Healthcare is a very important part of SBI’s corporate social responsibility vision. We visited the slums where AmeriCares works and were very impressed. We look forward to a long association,” said Guhathakurta.
The MMC is equipped with a portable pathology laboratory that enables testing for blood haemoglobin to detect anaemia, blood sugar to detect diabetes and to detect and assess end-organ damage due to diabetes and hypertension.
