Niramaya Health Foundation (NHF) was founded to cater to the health needs of the underprivileged and underserved in the slums of Mumbai and the tribal areas in Nasik district. Their vision is to ensure a disease-free childhood for a healthy and responsible adulthood. Their twin missions are to fight for an anaemia free world for the children of India, and to sensitize adolescents on their reproductive rights and sexual health.

Their programmes include:

  • Anaemia and Malnutrition Prevention and Control (APCP): NHF works to significantly reduce malnourishment. As a part of this programme, NHF conducts intervention camps, annual health checkup camps, regular follow up visits, nutrition education sessions, recipe demonstrations, and teachers’ sensitization programmes in the targeted slum communities, private balwadis, and pre-primary and primary schools of Mumbai. In FY15, 2,721 children benefitted from the intervention.
  • SPARSH (Sensitization Programme for Adolescents on Reproductive and Sexual Health): This initiative is specially designed to meet the needs of adolescents (age group of 9-19 years) to make the right decisions about their reproductive health. Health education sessions with IEC material, parents’ sensitization programmes, educational games, etc. are organised. In FY15, 5,638 adolescents were trained and their knowledge level before and after sessions was tested.
  • Rag Picker Health Care Programme: NHF designed this programme to provide clinic based health care for rag pickers and their families and women working on dumping grounds. There is also a drop-in centre for the children. The programme emphasizes health promotion & education, and awareness on personal hygiene with minimum resources, de-addiction, and family planning.
  • Tribal Health Care Programme:  NHF runs health centres and mobile van clinics in tribal areas in Nasik. They also train tribal girls and boys to be community health leaders. In FY15, 40,259 people benefitted through the mobile van checkups, tetanus injection camp, and eye screening camp.
  • Focused Intervention Programme:  The programme specifically aims at reducing the incidence of anaemia among adolescents from the most marginalised communities and residing near the largest dumping ground at Deonar. This is done by educating adolescents and their parents about good nutrition and health practices, encouraging dietary modifications, and providing micro-nutrient supplements. In FY15, 1,452 adolescents underwent the Haemoglobin test.
