"This event also addresses public health issues such as substance abuse, organ donation, vaccination and first aid from a new perspective enabling visitors to take necessary measures in case of emergency," said Ebin K Sebastian, chief organizer of the event.

To encourage children towards the study of medicine, organizers with the support of higher authorities at AIIMS have set up counters to provide hands-on experience.

"Most visitors are happy and kids especially are very keen to take up medicine as some of them told us after having used some of the specimens and enjoying the experiments," Sebastian said.
