One of the major problems in poor and neglected rural communities is health – or rather, the opposite of health. The consequences of poor sanitary facilities, unhygienic practices, and lack of safe water and health care are visible in many rural villages.
ASSIST promotes primary health care through intensive health education. While we focus on women of childbearing age and children under five, our community health programme covers issues like family welfare, mother and childcare, nutrition, drinking water, environmental sanitation and personal hygiene, immunisation and patient care. In remote areas, we organise massive health check-up camps.
