Health screening camp for Indian Down syndrome children, March 2021

The Indian Chapter of T21RS is planning to organize on March 2021 in Kolkata (India), an advocacy program followed by free health check-up camp for Down syndrome children from marginalized poor families. The pandemic of COVID 19 has made the living of these groups more difficult and affects adversely the living of their Down syndrome children too. The program includes advocacy lectures and scientific talks to provide awareness and updates regarding the heath issues (cognitive impairment, congenital heart defects, respiratory problems, immunosuppression etc.) of Down syndrome children among the parents from the backward classes. The program will focus on the importance of their engagement in the research activities for greater benefit for their children and society. In the second phase of this program, free health check-up service for their children will be offered to the families. T21RS will support this event.
