Society for Comprehensive Rural Health Projects in India (CRHP) seeks to empower people and communities through integrated efforts in health and development. Pioneering a comprehensive approach to community-based primary healthcare (Jamkhed Model), CRHP has been a leader in public health and development in rural communities in India and globally. Annually, CRHP provides services that directly impact 500,000 people in the state of Maharashtra.
Main programs are
Training Programs: CRHP hosts domestic training in the Jamkhed Institute for Training and Research. Trainees put their new found knowledge of community based primary healthcare into action in their own villages, towns and cities. Adolescent Boys and Girls Training Programs aim to increase awareness of nutrition, sanitation, physical and mental health and environmental knowledge.
Health Services: CRHP‘s 50-bed Julia hospital provides low-cost secondary care to half a million people in the Jamkhed Block. It is a fully equipped hospital and patients pay what they can afford, and for those who cannot afford anything, services are provided free of charge. In FY15, number of patients treated here was 8,222. CRHP also runs an Adolescent Artificial Limbs program which offers the Jaipur Foot made with locally produced materials at a nominal or no charge. CRHP’s Mobile Health Teams provides on-site support to Village Health Workers in project villages.
Education: Children between two and five years come to the Joyful Learning Preschool six days a week, gaining an academic and social head start before starting primary school. The Preschool provides a safe environment for approximately 60 children of Indiranagar slum every year. Furthermore, it helps build trust between CRHP and slum community so that they can help individuals organize themselves into women, men and adolescent groups. It also runs a Science Center which serves secondary school students from 5-12th standard from Jamkhed and surrounding rural areas.
Others: At CRHP’s 100-acre Khadkat Farm, there is a continued demonstration of collective farming techniques to improve agriculture for both subsistence and cash crops. Majority of grain and vegetables grown here are used in-house and the excess produce is sold in the local market providing an avenue for income generation.
