Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

Rural women should understand the essentiality of the health services. ? Health education for adolescent girls and rural mothers should improve the perceptions regarding reproductive age, specific health problems and preventive & curative measures for coping up various health problems. ? The proposed program should be run on the basis of sustainability, and to see the conditions of the projected rural places, it is necessary to continue this program at least five years duration for achieving fixed goals on various health issues.
