Fortis Hospital, Vashi, Conducts Health Check-up Camp for Auto Rickshaw Drivers of Navi Mumbai

Date : February 19, 2016

Fortis Hospital, Vashi in association with Chatrapati Shivaji Rickshaw Union and RTO organised a Free Heath Check-up Camp for the Auto rickshaw drivers of Navi Mumbai today. More than 200 rickshaw drivers got themselves screened and sought expert consultation. The doctors provided much needed consultation to help them understand ways to take better care of their health. The camp was conducted at Sector 19 at Koparkhairane.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) reported that approximately 2.4 million people die each year from causes directly attributable to air pollution. According to an independent study by Bharati Vidyapeeth Medical College in Pune, auto rickshaw drivers, who spend 8 to 10 hours daily in traffic pollution, stand at a high risk of restrictive lung disorder. The initiative, driven by the Auto Rickshaw Drivers’ Union (Chatrapati Shivaji Rickshaw Union), was an attempt to address the health woes of the auto rickshaw drivers.
