In this area there were no proper approach roads and proper conveyance. Under this project we provided mobile health services at their doorsteps. In our mobile team we have qualified & trained doctor, nurse, social worker, and coordinator. This team started providing medical treatments and advised them on hygiene, food habits, and organizing health awareness camps. Alongwith we organised community meetings on this topic. It gave us a positive result in changing attitude of villagers. Villagers are more awards now about vaccination of children, safe delivery, hygiene, and better food practices.

Health Camps

Keeping in view the prevailing ignorance of the target population Manav Kalyan Pritisthan started organizing health awareness camps in the villages. Initially it was more frequent as people were reluctant but after initial hesitation community responded well. Now people come forward with their health needs that may be a reflection of their growing awareness level. Traditional birth attendants at village level and organisations staffs as facilitators are instrumental in organizing these health camps. Villagers are being told about seasonal diseases, hygiene; antenatal, delivery and postnatal care and about malnutrition among mothers and children.
