We opened our fifth camp at the Sri Sathya Sai Mobile Hospital, based in Puttaparthi, Andhra Pradesh, today. What we found when we got to today's venue, Rachuvarapalli Village, was most heartening. The gynecology section administrator presented us with summary statistics for their VIA work during the six months since we were last here.
During their regular 12 day camps each month January through June, they have conducted 1276 VIA screenings and carried out 40 cryotherapy and 4 LEEP procedures. Three LEEPs were brought back to be done while Dr. Rhoda is here.
Their record keeping is very good and the lead VIA doctors are performing with confidence and competence. We introduced our QA materials today, and these were heartily welcomed, along with the idea of making one improvement every day. Our primary focus now at this location, in addition to reviewing quality items and procedures is to work towards increased "bench strength" of doctors who can capably carry out LEEP.
