The camp was organized by department of Community Medicine, JIMS HMC in collaboration with Vikas Tharangini of JIVA.

We reached the venue, at 9am. The venue was an Anganwadi school with two big rooms and shaded area full of trees. Room for screening was prepared for colposcopic examination. We established registration and dispensing outside the rooms. Consultation and colposcopy were organized inside the room.

Students were divided into groups of 2 for registration, 2 for dispensing, 6 for screening, 2 for patient movement on rotation basis. Girl students took turn to see the colonoscopy being done.

By afternoon, there were 150 registrations done. We have identified 23 Gyneac cases for active follow up.
