Through its health-based interventions, AJSA aims to-
- Enable and promote people’s access to primary health services
- Promote community-based mechanisms for maternal and child health care.
AJSAs health programmes ensure people from the most disadvantaged communities can access critical health care and live healthy, productive lives. To achieve the objective of creating a healthier society through improved preventive measures, AJSA organizes awareness programs on different health and hygiene-related issues. We use different innovative methods to pass the message by organizing awareness campaigns, street plays, puppet shows etc. to take various health issues to the community. The overall approach focuses on involving children and youth in awareness programs like rallies, debates etc.
AJSA educates community members about healthy habits and supports them with facilities such as clean drinking water and child growth monitoring. We promote good nutrition to mitigate anaemia, specifically in adolescent girls and women while also focusing on building physical and mental health awareness. AJSA’s pioneering model of community-based health care has brought life-saving health care services and information to the doorstep of the people living in poverty. Wise investments in health care have a significant impact on the lives of individuals, especially mothers and children, and have long-term social and economic benefits for society as a whole.
We at AJSA believe in behavioural change as the most radical means of change amongst communities and enable information on sanitation practices, healthcare, nutrition, medication, disease & well-being to reduce epidemics like AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and hepatitis. We do this with the collaboration of both government and communities through multiple awareness activities. We organize health weeks and health camps for different age groups in villages in coordination with village community members, PRI members, ICDS & anganwadi workers and see maximum participation that benefits all. The health awareness camps focus on diseases like Dengue and Chikungunya, Malaria, Diarrhoea, Mother and Child care, HIV/AIDS.
