"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

SATHI has played a significant role in shaping NRHM guidelines for health rights. In villages of Maharashtra, SATHI team has effectively introduced the measures suggested by NRHM through techniques like report cards for health officials and Jan Sunwais. SATHI is looking to replicate this model and implement similar health rights approach in Barwani district of Madhya Pradesh.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

1) Installation of an ambulance in the local govt. hospital through public movement.

 

  Goals

 

 

Building community capacity for demanding health rights would be the central theme of the Health Rights resource center. In this first phase of one year, this resource center would systematically promote health rights activities and would try to develop a critical mass around health rights issues, focusing on the work areas of partner organisations. Based on these experiences, the work of the centre may be further expanded and deepened.
