Youth Health Care Awareness Project
Residents of informal settlements are exposed to serious health and hygiene problems, and many of the repercussions they face are rooted in lack of awareness.
The Narotam Sekhsaria Foundation supports the Youth Health Care Awareness Project through outreach campaigns. The project, sited in Delhi, will involve a series of structured advocacy and outreach campaigns on HIV/Aids, Tuberculosis and maternal and child health, focused on conveying information in easy-to-understand and accessible formats, such as individual counselling and street plays.
The project aims to bring about sustained improvements in health care and hygiene standards in the settlement over the long term.
The project aims to use youth as a means of relaying essential information to over 70,000 residents of a slum area in Delhi.
Founded in 2007, Sun Shine Health and Social Welfare Society is an organisation based in Delhi that works with disadvantaged slum dwellers towards poverty alleviation, better health care standards, and holistic social development.
