Anemia Control Program

Anemia is the world’s second leading cause of illness and India is among the countries with one of the highest prevalence (70%-80%) of anemia. It is estimated that about 20%-40% of maternal deaths in India are due to anemia. The alarming number of women suffering from Anemia in rural India is 86.5%, inspired us to start a program to control Anemia in Ekal Villages.Arogya Foundation of India Aims to reduce the prevalence of Anemia in Ekal villages.

Arogya Sevika and Sanyojika

In India, a large number of people live far without nearby access to modern health facilities. A worker trained in health awareness, arogya sevika, plays a pivotal role to bring the much needed healthcare to the village. The arogya sevika is trained to prevent and treat common ailments like anemia, malaria, diarrhoea, mal-nutrition, skin diseases, etc. with available resources. There is one Arogya Sevika for every 5 villages and one Arogya Sanyojika per every village.

Chikitsa Seva Kendra (CSK)

To take care of the needs of secondary and tertiary health problems of our full time Karyakartas and villagers we have planned Karyakarta Chikitsa Shayata Kendra. This is going to be a referral centre for our above mentioned patients. A large number of specialist doctors are willing to be associated with Ekal Abhiyan. Karyakarta Chikitsa Shayata Kendra of AFI will refer the ailing Karyakartas to these doctors.
