During the COVID-19 epidemic, Ashray has been actively providing free health care services and hygiene supplies in 73 villages in Santalpur Taluka. Our 6+ years of working in Patan District gives us the ability to reach these families quickly & sensitize them about the importance of health and hygiene, to help them survive. We plan to conduct awareness sessions, provide supplies to the villagers to practice the correct hygiene practices and curb the spread of Covid-19 in the remote communities.

Challenge

To control the spread of diseases & reduce the growing rates of mortality due to lack of adequate health facilities, special attention needs to be given to the health care in rural areas. The key challenges in the healthcare sector are low quality of care, poor accountability, lack of awareness, and limited access to facilities. About 66% of rural Indians do not have access to critical medicines. 31 % of them travel more than 30 kms seeking healthcare in rural India.

Solution

Our existing Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) operates to provide a range of health care services for populations living in remote, inaccessible, un-served and underserved areas mainly with the objective of taking healthcare service delivery to the doorsteps of these populations. Health and hygiene promotion and behavioral change for sustained health seeking will be done through Community Health Workers (CHW) who will conduct awareness, training activities on COVID-19, symptoms, precautions to be taken

Long-Term Impact

Educating and sensitizing on COVID-19 and train possible prevention methods through awareness sessions, provision of hygiene supplies to about 25000 families in Santalpur Taluka. Community cooperation will be established to stand against any kind of disaster. Adopting clean and hygienic habits among the beneficiaries. Importance of social distancing, health and preemptive measures will be emphasized.
