He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.”
India has made rapid progress in the health sector since independence. Yet the recent data reveals that access to healthcare still remains a challenge for the rural masses of India.
While the health statistics of rural India continue to be poor, the health status of urban people is equally deplorable. Many underprivileged people suffer from adverse health conditions owing to mainly two reasons –firstly; the lack of education and thus lack of awareness; and secondly the unwillingness to lose a day’s wage in order to reach the nearest medical facility.
The need of the hour is thus a two pronged approach – first to bring quality health care services to doorsteps of the needy and second to promote healthcare awareness and contemporary health care services seeking behavior among the underprivileged.
Yuva Chetna Sangthan seeks to address the problems of mobility, accessibility and availability of primary health care with a special focus on children and women, in urban and remote rural areas.
