Health is the topmost priority for any empowerment activity.
As a part of the Village Group, Out Patient Clinics (OPCs) have been introduced in several areas where VFS has presence. These OPCs are providing medical services to the patients through qualified medical practitioners. Mobile clinics have been arranged for patients in remote localities.. Doctors visit the camps 2 days a week.
