Many people do not have awareness about health and hygiene. STEPS will provide healthcare and health education to poor slum dwellers. People with Malaria, LF suffer from its effects over their entire lifetime. LF develops into chronic conditions, leads to body deformities, causes social stigma and increased medical expenses.

As a result of this program, there will be an improvement in the health of slum people and better care of Filariasis patients. This will lead to awareness among people about diseases.
