Reproductive Child Health Care ^Top
GVK has been facilitating an RCH programme in underserved areas of Dunda block, Uttarkashi district, to improve quality of mother and child health care services. This three years long comprehensive programme is being supported financially by Health Department, Govt. of Uttarakhand. The objectives to this programme are as-

  • To increase the percentage of women receiving complete antenatal care from 23% to 55% by 2010

  • To increase the accessibility and utilization of institutional delivery from 14% to 50% by 2010

  • To increase the percentage of children receiving complete immunization services upto 80 % by 2010, and

  • To make eligible couples and pregnant women aware in health care issues.

The programme was initiated in Gainwala and Jadidumka sub centres after a formal selection and training of staff members. Initially, A base line survey was conducted to assess the health status in the region. The survey revealed that the status of institutional deliveries is very poor and still most of the families prefer deliveries at home with the help of traditional Dai. The status of immunization among children is also poor.

After the intervention of Garhwal Vikas Kendra the objectives was achieved through conducting awarness camps, organizing health checkup camps and meetings with adolescent and eligible groups beside training and motivating AHSA warkers, Anganwadi workers and Panchayat representatives for antenatal care and institutional deliveries.

Water and Sanitation ^Top
SWAP programme is being carried out by SWAJAL (World Bank supported project) in many districts of the state. One of the important aspects of this programme is public- private partnership in which NGOs are playing crucial role in formation of village water and sanitation committees (VWSC) and facilitating the committees in planning and execution of drinking water schemes for their villages.

GVK provided training on accounts keeping and management of drinking water and sanitation schemes to VWSC members. The implementation of schemes has now been undertaken by VWSC in  8 gram panchayats of Tehri and Uttarkashi districts.
