Women's Health Services
KRIA strongly believes that access to these services can drastically change the opportunities for women. Through this program we reach millions of women, girls living in some of the most backward and underserved areas with easy to access and culturally relevant maternal and reproductive health services. Improving maternal health has been an integral part of our work right from the early years.
Our approach to maternal health care follows a continuum of care from pre-pregnancy to post partum care. Through mobile health clinics, health camps and community health workers we reach women living in the underserved areas of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and bring essential services to their doorstep. We provide pregnant women easy access to quality ante natal care and sensitise them about the importance of institutional deliveries. We build and strengthen linkages with the government system to ensure that both mother and newborn are followed up post partum. We build awareness on adequate nutrition during pregnancy and breastfeeding, adoption of hygienic practices during delivery and adequate spacing of births to improve the health of women.
Reproductive health is also an important element of our work. We build awareness about the several reproductive health issues and empower women and girls with the right information so that they can make the right decisions. We work to increase access to reproductive health services and involve men as active partners in the same.
By providing community based health services supported by a strong referral system, we help save the lives of thousands of women living in the underserved areas of Telangana.
Child Health Services
Delivering healthcare to over a billion people is a very complex challenge.
It focuses on issues related to the health and health care of neonates, children, young people and their families, including areas such as illness, disability, complex needs, well-being, quality of life and mental health care in a diverse range of settings.
KRIA works in close collaboration with State and Central Government and other partner organisations to secure accessible and quality maternal and child healthcare among marginalised communities. We work towards identifying the root causes of healthcare challenges, provide innovative solutions, and help implement secure and quality healthcare services in India.
