In collaboration with Voluntary Health Association of Sikkim and Inclusive India Foundation we rolled out the Health on Wheels (HoW) project. The key goal of the project is to deliver quality primary healthcare through a mobile healthcare unit. This project currently covers 9 remote villages in east Sikkim. The target population of this intervention are children (age group: 0-6), lactating and pregnant women.
With this project we strive to provide increased access to health care services to the community where accessibility is a major concern, raise awareness on key healthcare themes such as sanitation and importance of clean drinking water especially among women and adolescents, and complete immunisation services for the children below 6 years of age.
