From the proposed community health program, the organization will give stress on two main health issues Malaria and Reproductive health concerned to the adolescent girls, women of the tribal communities in Ayodhya hill areas. These two health issues deliberately needed services for those neglected, deprived and backward rural peoples. From the proposed program the organization has expected some specific outputs through appropriate health planning and service delivery system. The expected outputs will be ? Considering malaria as a massive disease, through this program malaria can be reduced in a certain rate. ? Community action will be improved through this proposed program. ? Capacity of the rural women will be developed through adequate health meetings, door to door campaign, awareness generation and necessary training programs regarding said health issues. ? 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.
