Program to reduce deaths & malnutrition of tribal in central India .

Respected and Dear all,


MAHAN is the non- governmental organization dedicated to provide medical facilities to the tribal population of Melghat region (~ 3 lakhs).  Melghat is located in a hilly forest area in the Satpuda mountain ranges, where medical facilities are grossly inadequate (Doctor Patient ratio < one M.B.B.S.doctor per 10,000 patients). MAHAN trust was founded by Myself,  Dr. Ashish Satav, MD, (46 years) and  my wife Dr.(Mrs.) Kavita Satav, MS (Ophthalmology) in 1998. When even any M.B.B.S. doctor was not willing to settle down in Melghat tribal area, we at the young age of 26, decided to stay in Dharni, Melghat to serve the tribal. We have already devoted 19 years of our life to this cause. 
The Area has very high mortality rate in under 5 children and in age group (16-60 years). MAHAN has already built a critical patient, eye hospital and children hospital, saved thousands of serious patients, provided vision to thousands of poor people & changed lives of hundreds of disabled patients by plastic surgeries. Home based child care is being provided for treatment of childhood illnesses specially to children suffering from malnutrition. Nutrition education and training of village health workers is playing an important role in providing proper health facilities to rural and tribal families in Melghat. MAHAN could reduce under 5 children deaths & severe malnutrition by more than 64% and deaths in age group of 16-60 years by more than 50% in 17 villages of Melghat.
 
Many of our successful programs & recommendations have been adopted by the Government for all tribal areas of Maharashtra thus benefiting lakhs of tribal population. Successful de-addiction of hundreds of people changed families. MAHAN developed sustainable source of nutrition for poor tribal. Innovative counselor program has saved thousands of lives by improving government hospitals. Through public interest litigation in Mumbai high court, MAHAN saved thousands of lives.
 
We have been honored with many prestigious awards (e.g. World Health Organization Public Health Champion Award) & international research publications and presentations for our research and services to the tribal.   

We will be very happy if your financial support can improve health status of poor tribal . 
Our detail report is attached.

 

With regards

Sincerely yours

Ashish Satav
