Health and Disability

Apnalaya's Health and Disability Program

Our Health program (with an integrated component of Disability) keeping in mind the harsh realities of M East ward, seeks to break the cycle of inter-generational poor health through a full life-cycle intervention approach. 

Currently, we reach out to approximately five and a half lakh (0.5 million) people with 35127 direct beneficiaries through the health program. 

Our health team reaches out to 7600 households every month through: 

1. Home visits to collect health status of pregnant women, lactating mothers, and children (0-6 years) and spread awareness on MNHCN and other relevant information.

2. Workshops with youth and adult community volunteers on Life skills, Gender, Nutrition & Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR)

3. Working with MCGM’s Health, Education, ICDS and Social Welfare department to improve existing services for persons with disabilities

4. Awareness generation through research and advocacy.
