The first transgender OPD and blood donation camp will be inaugurated by Dr Ajay Shukla, Director and Medical Superintendent of RML Hospital.
"This is the first step, we will be organising every Friday OPD exclusively for transgenders, and if we see increasing numbers then days will be increased." Dr Ajay Shukla, MS, RML told ANI.
Dr Shukla said, "They avoid coming to normal OPDs. So, we decided to start separate OPD service for them.
