Ensuring women have access to high-quality health information (2)

24 August, 2022

In our country India, Angan wadi sevikas are the most trusted contact point for spreading health information to women and children. These 'sevikas' are basically community workers appointed by the government. They operate by conducting home visits under certain campaigns launched by local government authorities and inform women in the households about campaign-related preventive measures and curative schemes for the same provided by the government.

Children receive health information through fun activities conducted at 'Anganwadis' i.e, a type of rural (even in some urban parts) childcare center in India.
