Sabuj Sangha intended to improve health condition of the people of remote Sundarbans; South 24 Parganas to ensure safe motherhood by providing Ante Natal & Post Natal care and reducing maternal and infant mortalities. Initiatives are taken to make people aware about common ailments, especially geriatric; through this project we would ensure quality health services with all facilities namely X-Ray, ECG, USG, Pathology & Surgery with affordable costs for reducing IMR & MMR & control blindness.
The Public Health System in Sundarban is extremely inadequate. It is neither dependable nor accessible leading to extreme severity to the health scenario. 16% of sub centers are non-functioning; 65.6% women and 62.5% pregnant women are anemic; 62% girls get married before 18 years of age and 30% of these women deliver their first child before 19 years of age. Majority of PHC & BPHC do not cater for common ailments like geriatric, dental, ophthalmology problem etc.
We will provide affordable quality services on curative & preventive health to 83,403 people in Patharpratima and Mathurapur-II CD Blocks, All services will be provided at subsidised rate ensuring accessibility and affordability for the community. Through its Health & Training Centre and Mobile Medical Clinic, Sabuj Sangha will ensure safe motherhood in the Region and reducing maternal and infant mortalities by 10% and other common ailments as well.
As an effect of Project interventions, health seeking behavior will be enhanced among community; community will access affordable and quality health services at their doorsteps. Good health status of people will create a positive impact on livelihood, saving loss of man days. It will also reduce drop - out rates, child labour and early marriage and thus ensuring quality education. Replicable and scalable health service delivery model will also be established.
