Malco Clinic And Camp

To provide access to good healthcare for the underprivileged, we run Clinic, which provides free treatment and medicines five days a week to an average of 5,000 people every year. The clinic runs between 5.30 – 6.30 pm from Monday to Friday.

It is the first privately-run, government DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment Short course) centre to be set up in partnership with RNTCP (Revised National Tuberculosis Program) in Salem.

This is a special programme initiated with the aim of reaching out to the underprivileged in Mettur, Tamil Nadu. The Clinic has been effective in conducting health camps to offer preventive, curative and referral services for the rural population.
