In association with ASHA (Accredited SocialHealth Activists) workers, Rehab India Foundation conducts various awareness programmes inrural areas, especially for women. Rural women. experience poor health outcomes, and haveless access to health care than their male or urban. counterparts. With ASHA’s assistance, Rehab has focused on ensuring that rural women are educated on health care-relatedtopics, such as malnutrition, maternal and infant mortality, etc. Accredited social health activistsand community health workers instituted by the government of India’s Ministry of Health andFamily Welfare (MoHFW) as part of the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) have contributedto these systems. Rehab also gives special attention to the education of people on the importance of leading a healthy life. Public Health Centres (PHCs) are state-owned rural health care facilities in India. They are essentially single-physician clinics, usually equipped with facilities to conduct minor surgeries.They are part of the government-funded publichealth system in India, and are the most basicunits of this system. PHCs are the cornerstone ofrural healthcare. PHCs and their sub-centres aresupposed to meet the health care needs of rural population. Unfortunately, due to non-accessibilityand lack of awareness amongthe rural populace, they do not approach PHCs.In order to tackle this pressing problem,Rehab, in association with local PHCs, has organized several healthcare programmes and awareness campaigns,to encourage rural people to access healthcare.
