You are the best social entrepreneur

The best yogi is one who regards every being like oneself and who can feel the pain and pleasures of others as ones own, O Arjuna. (Gita-6.32) Nothing is beyond the reach of those who have others interest in their mind. Selfless service to humanity is the true service to God and the highest form of worship.

HEALTH EDUCATION IN INDIA AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH TOWARDS ANTE NATAL & POST NATAL CARE ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AREA. The health of the people is the wealth of our Country. It is an important component of human resources development. Health goes hand in hand with social-economic development. It is the responsibility of the state to ensure health for all. Health education is a fundamental necessity in a welfare state. People need health education consistently. The International Union for Health Education has stated its position on school health education in a policy paper thus: Any subject, whether tobacco or nutrition is best taught not as a single stand-alone course, but rather within a more comprehensive school health education programme that provides planned chronological education about health at every grade level, that focus on behavioral skills (e.g. decision-making, communication skills, negotiations skills etc.) and that consequently establishes a foundation for understanding relationship between personal behavior and health. The subject of health is widely discussed throughout the world. Health is not a gift that is bestowed by any supernatural power. Health is means the condition of being safe and sound, complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. Health is earned by the people through conscious, planned and sustainable efforts all through the life. The state has an obligation to ensure enjoyment of the highest attainable standards of health as one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social distinction. Health education is a term commonly used and referred to by health professionals. Health education is the part of health care that is concerned with promoting healthy behavior. Health education is a process that informs, motivates and helps people to adopt and maintain healthy practices and lifestyles, advocates environmental changes. The Government of India and state governments are responsible for providing countrywide education to the people on health care. The Directorate General of Health Services set up Central Health Education Bureau (CHEB) in 1956 to coordinate health education services through various divisions in the country. The School Health Education Division of Central Health Education Bureau provides and monitors the centrally sponsored school health service scheme since April 1977 meant for primary school students in rural areas. Health education is indeed an inter-disciplinary approach which draws contents and initiatives from physical, biological, medical and behavioral sciences. Health instruction is not considered a part of the total school curriculum and missing from primary school to university levels in India. Formal health education programmes are not designed and implemented ante natal and post natal care in our country. Significant health aspects such as health care, nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, preventive medicine, community health, environment protection, drug addiction, mental health and so on are not covered systematically by our schools, colleges and universities. Habits are not cultivated by the students due to lack of health education. Systematical health instruction is not imparted on mandatory and regular basis. The students do not get the benefit of incidental teaching on health care resources and methods Non Government Organizations are playing a vital role in the society as educators, implementers of change and provide a bridging link between the government and the people. They are providing education, training and guidance to the people on various developmental themes including health management. Health education has not been accorded a place of pride in government organizations, non-government organizations, educational institutions and media organizations in India. The vision Health for All By 2000 AD may remain empty and the progress toward that goal will be late if we fail to revive the health education system throughout the country both formally and informally. The future agenda for the Central Government, State Governments/Union Territories and Panchayati Raj institutions must deal with the process of peoples participation in health education in which related processes such as developing a suitable health education policy, health curriculum, imparting health education, training health educators, monitoring health education services.

The rate of mortality among pregnant women is alarmingly high due to one or more of the following reasons: Ignorance, illiteracy and poverty. High illiteracy rate in females. High proportion of deliveries through midwives/Dais. Low level of immunization. Poor state of health facilities. Locational disadvantages.

Lack of access nutritious and healthy diet, pregnant women generally face the problem of little growth of their offspring. Most women are unaware of the need to maintain a high standard of hygiene during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Anemia widely prevalent due to nutritional deficiency, especially strikes women of childbearing age, particularly during pregnancy. Death due to anemia could largely be prevented by increasing qualitatively the dietary intake. It should be balanced and rich in iron. Consumption of folic acid tablets over a long period and spacing child birth by at least three years may help in improving the situation. Children born to anemic mothers are likely to have low birth weight and would be relatively more prone to a host of diseases. Anemia can be controlled and eliminated provided patients take to the use of iron and folic acid for long periods to time. While leafy vegetables and potatoes are important sources of folic acid, cereals and vegetables abound in iron. Another contributory cause behind the high rate of maternal and infant deaths are: Delivery through untrained midwives/Dais. It is very important to associate a trained and well experienced midwife with delivery. To the extent possible, delivery should be arranged at a health centre or hospital. High frequency of tetanus. This virus flourishes due to pregnant women are not immunize against tetanus and other infections. Birth in unhygienic conditions and surroundings puts the mother and the new born at highrisk of contacting serious infections. Family members are not aware of the complications likely to arise during pregnancy and never plan in advance for transporting the patient in case of emergency as comfortable as possible to the nearest hospital/PHC. To enhance the level of awareness among Anganwadi workers about ante natal and post natal care. The central govt. State govts., NGOs should organizing capacity building workshops on ante natal and post natal care for the benefit of Anganwadi workers. Information Education & Communication (IEC) materials like producing booklet with as set of samples, posters etc. should be distributed to Anganwadi workers for their use and guidance. (The IEC materials would be simple and easy to understand). Posters would also be displayed at prominent places in the villages. Hiring social work professionals as trainers, for training Anganwadi workers of the identified areas.

PROJECT AREA: The Organization has already launched the Awareness services with its existing infrastructure in the identified areas, till to-day we are able to support 100 villages in STATE. The organization would establish linkages with government health centre for specialized treatment and tie up with other NGOs to provide support to poor women. It would also open up opportunities of vocational training for village women. Vocational education will take up health and hygiene issues as an integral component of adult education programs. Vocational education will help to spread knowledge about health care and nutrition, thereby enabling mothers to keep their family in better health and to care better for their children. Vocational education will also spread information for creating awareness about problems of early marriage, spacing and small family norms. Vocational education will also play a significant role in improving the status of women within their own families. Whereas traditionally, women have little say in the family decision making, they, through literacy, they will be able to express their newly found self-belief in having say both within and without the family MONITORING OF THE PROJECT: The Project Director and Manager would carry out internal monitoring of the programme and coordinate efforts between the field and office staff to promote the objectives of the project. A core group will be formed of members from the community, social workers and our governing Body. They will be prepared to review our works at the end of every three months. And they will also be an integral part of planning of work BACKGROUND OF IMPLEMENTING PARTNER: Capacity building workshops Community Based Rehabilitation Awareness Camp on National integration Workshop on social forestry
