Project Report October 2021 - February 2022

Reporting Period – October 2021 – February 2022 


The Health Foundation is working in Rashidabad since 2016 and the beautiful place of Rashidabad is built by Rashid Welfare Organization (RWO) situated on the Hyderabad-Mirpurkhs Road near Tando Allahyar, over 86 acres of land. 

We have completed our work with the limited resource in UC Dhingano Bozdar and have covered a total population of 36,000. Socio-economic status: lower-income group.

Project Overview:

The Health Foundation with this project would be taking a step up the ladder towards its goal of making a significant difference in decreasing the prevalence of Hepatitis B/C. It envisions a community-based intervention, linked to a Hepatitis center at Rashidabad, which would carry out this mission for a preselected population, through its well-run and established programs integrated at one point, linking up the community and the services of the THF Hepatitis Centre. The beneficiaries, in this case, would be the community of villages in UC where Rashidabad project exists
