View Story
The health programme focuses mainly on rural Uttarakhand’s women and children. Women have a gruelling schedule, and work at home, in the fields, and tend to animals. With poor control over family size, early marriage, frequent childbirth and superstitious dietary restrictions during lactation, they are extremely vulnerable to ill health.

Women are more malnourished than men, girls more than boys in these parts. Maternal deaths (359 mothers die for every 100,000 live births according to a survey in Uttarakhand & U.P., 2007-2009) and many other related problems abound. Against this backdrop, we provide community-based health-care and access to some of the country’s highly-trained medical professionals, through our hospital and also through mobile medical camps.
