Health & Hygiene

For the past two decades, SNSF has been the implementation partner for important governmental healthcare programmes like Mother NGO for Reproductive and Child Health, Janani Suvidha Yojana, National Rural Health Mission’s Urban Reproductive and Child Health, among others. These partnerships have helped SNSF reach out to the underserved and unserved populations living in difficult, hilly and largely arid regions of the country, as well as urban slums.

 

Addressing the healthcare needs of the industrial workforce, raising HIV/AIDS awareness, imparting information pertaining to safety guidelines, worker rights and ergonomics are the salient features of SNSF’s activities in this area. Supplier to leading global garment retailers like GAP, large construction sites like Punj Lloyd (involving ~3,000 workers) and several MSMEs have lent a helping hand to SNSF in this vertical.

 

In partnership with the AIDS control societies of Mumbai, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana, Since the early-2000s, SNSF has been raising awareness about the causes and preventive methods of venereal diseases among high-risk groups like truckers, migrant workers and commercial sex workers. Usage of mobile health vans combined with street plays communicating health-related information has been the go-to strategy for SNSF’s health outreach initiatives.
