The Karawita Central Collage serves approximately 8,000 school children, covering seven schools in surrounding areas. Health authorities, in consultation with the education ministry, have also decided to use this clinic to provide dental and prenatal carein the area. Dental care will be provided to the school children during school hours and prenatal mothers would be catered for after school.
While achieving our primary objective of uplifting oral health among school children, the Bank has been able to help the local industry by selecting a local dental chair manufacturer for the project.
Installations of the other cluster dental surgery units will take place in early 2012.
