Arsenic Knowledge and Action Network engaged with the arsenic affected communities in the villages of Simri block, Buxar in Bihar viz. through a two-day health camp, 20th – 21st March to identify patients affected with arsenic toxicity. Following this, focus group discussions and personal interactions were held from 22nd March -26th March so as to gauge the understanding and perception of the communities about the issue of arsenic contamination and identify potential solutions.
