Need: Urgent need of mobile medical van for poor rural/tribal women
Gram Bharati Samiti (GBS) has been working in 50 villages in the Rajasthan state of India among the rural/tribal women to empower them in terms of raising awareness on reproductive and sexual health, prevention of HIV/AIDS and other STDs and pregnancy related issues. Already over 5,000 women of backward castes and classes have joined SHG (Self Help Groups) promoted by GBS.
The area of villages GBS is working in is a most backward one in district Jaipur. There are no health care facilities in and around a radius of 30 kms. Many women are suffering from number of STD/RTIs, but either they are not aware of the risk and consequences of the diseases or can’t afford to go the hospitals based in Jaipur or other towns. Several women die before reaching the hospitals due to complicated delivery cases.
That’s why we very urgently need a mobile medical van equipped with necessary medical tools and equipments.
