Recognizing the importance of preventive and curative health care, UPES has taken several initiatives related to health. It is our endeavor to provide basic healthcare facilities in the region around the university campus. We are committed to providing all possible support to create awareness on various health related issues impacting the local people. We organize health camps like General Health Check-up Camps, Gynecology Camps, and Eye Check-up Camps at villages around UPES as well as at the UPES campus. Free medical consultation and medicines are provided by highly qualified and dedicated doctors. The response to such free health camps has been excellent particularly for the village women who are able to freely interact with lady doctors.
Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane. -MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
