Beed District Project supported by UNFPA
The project focuses on improving access of health & reproductive health services to ‘Denotified and Nomadic Tribal (DNT) Populations especially DNT Women & Girls, who are amongst the most disadvantaged populations today in India.
Vasti Aarogya Samitis were established in all 12 DNT settlements of the project. It was ensured that each Vasti Aarogya Samiti has at least 50% of women members.
Thirty six health education programs were conducted in 12 DNT settlements.
The health camps garnered good response from the DNT communities and witnessed participation of 458 DNT populations mainly of :
I. Wadwani – 133 participants,
II. Dharur – 134 participants,
III. Gevarai – 191 participants
The overall achievement of the project was achieved by strengthening the linkages with the mainstream government Health Services.
