Doctors at this clinic not only attended to my son, but also advised me about further steps," she said. They were supportive. This is an amazing concept to provide public healthcare facilities next door, especially to women and children, the woman added.  An initiative of the AAP government, the clinic was set up in the Delhi pavilion. The clinic has come to the rescue of not only visitors but also the staff of other states" and countries", officials added.

We provided medical help to more than 300 people during this time." "Apart from this there were many walk-ins for free medical consultation where people sought guidance from the doctor on their existing medical health condition," she said, adding that the fair was opened for the general public on November 19 and since then the clinic has addressed the queries and attended hundreds of people every day. Another visitor Seema said, "I liked this initiative of the Delhi government. Women can explain their health conditions to the doctor here without any hesitation and can take advantage of this facility." The Mahila Mohalla Clinics provide comprehensive primary healthcare services to women, children under 12 and adolescent girls in a female-friendly environment.
