We design, deliver and support solutions for the health and well-being of the poor.
Crisis: Health systems in India are inadequate, poorly designed, and lacks customer focus. The cycle of ill health and poverty is kept intact by system inefficiencies, episodic treatment seeking behavior of the poor, and minimal focus on prevention and non-medical determinants of health.
Programs: a) Invest For Wellness program Swasti focuses on innovating the primary health care system through designing and providing affordable and accessible health services to the destitute. They strive to design a self-propelled, viable primary healthcare model that can effectively break the cycle of ill-health and poverty. b) Water, Sanitation and hygiene: This program strives to reduce disease incidences, improve drinking water systems and accessibility to toilets and hand washing facilities. Swasti works with rural communities on improving their water security and wash facilities in schools and factories. c) Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights: The SRHR program focuses on the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI/HIV), encourages girls, women and sexual minorities to lead violence-free lives, and a better future. Swasti provides empowerment irrespective of social status, gender identity or sexual orientation by establishing local chapters comprised of counselling services, gender orientation and life skills training workshops.
Outcome: Swasti's water supply model has provided clean and safe drinking water to 1625 households in 40 villages, 12 schools, and 3 hospitals. The model has allowed 79.2 lakh liters of treated water to be supplied. Their work with community organizations in five States has led to a 30% decrease in violence reported by individuals and they have enriched the lives of 4,318 children, women and men in urban slums.
