Drishtee Maternal Health project provides pregnancy care & education to 4500 marginalised pregnant females in 25 Indian villages annually to reduce the number of maternal and infant deaths
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Several females living in rural areas loose their lives due to pregnancy related conditions, leaving behind a child with lesser chance of survival. Children without mother are less likely to get care, education, nutrition leading them to a continued cycle of poverty & poor health. Leading causes of maternal deaths are highly treatable if adequate care is available. But, this care is inaccessible due to large distances, poor infrastructure & inadequate no. of health workers in rural locations.
How will this project solve this problem?
Project develops health franchisee in every village to educate the community. With the help of nurse she provides pregnancy related check-ups to every pregnant female & conducts monthly gynecologist camps to screen complicated pregnancies.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will establish 25 health franchisee to educate a target population of 10,000 people on the need of maternal health care and will provide pregnancy related care to 4500 pregnant females, reducing the number of maternal and infant deaths
