Health

Despite the UN and UNICEF goals articulated in 1978 of “Health for All by 2000”, India and many other developing countries have yet to see this goal become a reality. Arogya has focused its work on public health since its inception in 1995 and works extensively on the dual issues of empowering people to use available facilities and of strengthening the public health care system so that it is accessible and affordable to the poor. Ill-health can not only cause premature mortality, partial or complete immobility, and physical discomfort, but can also be an economic drain to individuals, family members, and friends who tend to the diseased person. The cumulative effect of high levels of premature mortality and morbidity negatively impacts the over all productivity of a nation. Due to lack of nutritious food, unhygienic conditions, and lack of existing infrastructure, the rural poor are especially in need of health care services. In addition, women, children and adolescents are particularly susceptible to illness and have specific health needs.
