Dear Friends,

Below is an update on our immunization program, which according to MIT researchers and authors of "Poor Economics" (, Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo, is "one of the most impressive we have evaluated, and probably the one that has saved most lives." We hope that you are as proud as us to be a part of such a great success. The report below summarizes our progress in the past year, from March 2012 - April 2013:

Immunization camps are being conducted in 113 villages across the five blocks. In the last reporting period, immunization camps were conducted in 125 locations, of which 12 locations were dropped this year as the government began providing support in these locations.

During the reporting period, 1,308 camps were conducted against the target of 1,422 camps, which means 92% of camps were held. A total of 114 camps had to be cancelled due to reasons as mentioned below:

  • Unavailability of nurse - 56
  • Heavy rains and bad roads - 14
  • Replacement for nurse/assistant could not be arranged - 23
  • Festivals - 12
  • Other - 9

During the reporting period, a total of 1,324 children were registered in the immunization camps against 1,267 children registered in the previous year.

Apart from the routine vaccinations, 2,429 children were given treatment for illnesses such as fevers, coughs, colds, eye or ear infections, diarrhea and skin infections.

The camps also registered 1,783 women for antenatal checkups, an improvement of 230 compared to last year. Of these total registered women, 1,645 received one dose of tetanus toxoid vaccine and 1,377 women received both the doses. The components of antenatal checkups included a hemoglobin test, urine test, blood pressure measure and counseling on care during pregnancy.

This has been an incredibly successful year for our Health team at Seva Mandir. We have been working hard to make sure that quality health care reaches the communities who need it the most, and we couldn't have done without your support!

Please feel free to comment or rate our report, and share our good work with your friends!

With regards,
