Immunisation Programme is one of the key interventions for protection of children from life threatening but preventable conditions. Because of poverty related reasons, immunisation of new born and other children gets distracted as most of the community people are from marginalised background. Thus, such Programme has been initiated in the Rural Hospital of Sabuj Sangha. The inhabitants who are catered belong to two blocks namely Patharpratima and Mathurapur II, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India and do not have access to proper medical facilities as the areas are quite remote and isolated. The infant mortality is high due to malnutrition and improper immunisation. 

Mamoni, wife of Balaram of Mahabbatnagar village of Nandakumarpur GP, gave birth to her first child and it was a normal delivery. Her newborn male child is 2kgs 750gms of weight. He is a healthy child. He had his first immunisation injection of vitamin-K (K-Nat 0.5) after one hour of the delivery.

Sabuj Sangha’s RHTC is situated in Nandakumarpur GP, South 25 Parganas, West Bengal where underprivileged people from Patharpratima and Mathurapur II block visit for the treatment and advised accordingly by the general physicians, gynaecologists, optometrists, orthopaedics etc. Information about the OPD days, time and doctor’s availability, system of service delivery etc. are circulated by the health workers and supervisors during home visits and communication materials are also used for disseminating health messages in the communities. Patients attend RHTC for diagnosis and treatment of ailments as well as pregnant & lactating mother care. RHTC works as a wonder in peoples’ life since they get such services 24 X 7 and therefore in emergencies too. In last one year (April 2015 - March 2016), total number of 5269 patients received OPD service from RHTC.

Namita, wife of Sahadev is an inhabitant of Jagannath Chak of Nandakumarpur GP. She belongs to a very poor family as her husband is a daily labourer. She is a pregnant woman. She has been brought to RHTC by the local health worker of Sabuj Sangha to avail the advice of specialised gynaecologist at OPD. She was happy to get an opportunity to see a doctor with such higher degree against such a small registration fee. She stated, “In future also, I will visit the hospital for availing the services in a very reasonable rate and will motivate others to avail the health care services of the hospital of Sabuj Sangha.”

The inhabitants from two blocks namely Patharpratima and Mathurapur II, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India do not have access to proper medical facilities as the areas are quite remote and isolated. Also, most of the patients who receive healthcare facilities belong to the marginalized section of the society and from BPL families. Whatever be the situation, generally pregnant women suffer from vulnerabiliy. Moreover, in this area, the women do not have proper guidance during pregnancy and have a little knowledge of the safety measures should be taken during pregnancy. Therefore, the newborn child has lots of problem and even the mothers have problems too.

Problems before pregnancy and after pregnancy may occur but that should be properly catered. Sabuj Sangha always has an aim to address such issues. Therefore, while addressing it, the Organisation has provided antenatal care (ANC) and postnatal care (PNC) to total number of 1641 pregnant and lactating mothers in last one year (April 2015 - March 2016).

After receiving the support of ANC, a beneficiary named Manashi from a remote and isolated village Kuemuri of Herembogopalpur GP of Patharpratima Block, wife of Nilkamal (who is a daily labourer and belongs to a poor family) says “I know a very little about the ANC. My neighbour informed me to go for ANC check-up camp organised by the health worker of Sabuj Sangha. I was little bit frightened. I did not know what to ask. The health worker visited my home and discussed with me and my family about several issues related to the pregnancy and the easily available local nutritional food. I was shy and scared too. She checked my blood pressure and haemoglobin status. She adviced me to visit the camp and have discussions and interactions with other pregnant mothers and also have the routine check-ups. I went to the camp with other pregnant women. We all interacted with each other about the issues, did routine check-ups and guided by the health workers about how to overcome the situation. I am happy to have this service and will motivate other pregnant women to attend the ANC camp.”
