Ankur Rural Health Centre

Rural Community Health Initiative

This program runs at the slums areas of Sangli & Miraj . We extend health services to underprivileged women and children, adolescents, unorganized migrant laborers and rag pickers. It also conducts health awareness sessions for pregnant and lactating women. In these meetings the mothers are given guidance on their and their child’s nutrition status, intake of nutritious diet, motivated for institutional delivery and postnatal care, and emphasis is given on breastfeeding, timely and correct weaning and the importance of immunizing the child. Anemia detection camps are held for women in the reproductive age group and those found with low Hb count are provided with iron supplements and suggested ways to correct their diet. As part of its preventive health program the project conducts awareness sessions on hygiene, skin infection, STI/HIV/AIDS and many such topics. To dispel myths and misconceptions in the minds of the youth, the program conducts adolescent sexual and reproductive health education sessions. Once a month, they celebrate health marker day in the community through street plays, film shows, exhibitions, etc. Many of the unorganized migrant laborers and rag pickers take active part in this event

Community Health Care program

It is not hyperbole to write that although our medical science has reached to a very high level but still in the world only “AIDS” is the disease which is totally incurable and once it attacks any one it ends only after the death of the patient. The only cure of AIDS is safety. In the workshop-cum-seminar the attendants were made aware of the reasons leading to AIDS and the ways to remain safe from the AIDS. The workshop-cum-seminar was very much liked by the participants.
