Breaking Intergenerational Cycle of Poor Health among Children and Women
  • Crisis: Indian urban households usually face poor nutritional and health outcome especially for women and children. SNEHA was founded in 1999 to work on improving quality of public health services for underserved communities.
  • Programs: SNEHA operated through its 4 main programs: i) Maternal & Newborn Health - In order to improve health services for pregnant women and new borns SNEHA collaborates with public institutions. ii) Child Health & Nutrition - To overcome and prevent malnutrition in children less than 3 years of age SNEHA is in partnership with Intergrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS). iii) EHSAS - The NGO works with adolescents to impart knowledge in the areas of physical and mental health, sexuality & social norms, etc. They also work with health systems to become more responsive to the needs of adolescents. iv) Prevention of Violence Against Children & Women - SNEHA engages with survivors of violence to provide them legal resolution and counseling. To prevent gender-based violence they have tied up with several public systems to bring about a well-ordered change.
