Health and Nutrition

In spite of so many efforts made by the Government of India and so many health care infrastructures built (like NHM) the condition of the rural North-East India is still below national average. There is high rate of child mortality due to lack of immunization and malnutrition in the villages. And health care facilities are very meagre and diseases like Malaria, Tuberculosis, Cancer, Anaemia cholera, Typhoid, Diarrhoea etc are some of the most prevalent diseases in operational areas of AIDA.  

AIDA intervenes in the health sector by creating awareness on health and nutrition; conducting health camps, upgradation of health centres for providing quality health services and mobile medical van.  Through intervention in the Anganwadi centres, the projects educate the beneficiaries on Supplementary Nutrition Programme (SNP) under ICDS which involves the supply of food materials to mothers and children (0-6 years) and also promotes Kitchen garden to improve nutrition and health outcomes of rural communities.
