Health

Humana People to People India’s (HPPI) health projects and initiatives are directed towards reaching poor and marginalised people with critical information and services and strengthening their linkages with the National Health and Disease Control Programmes for better access and service utilisation.

HPPI works to meet the demand for basic primary healthcare and infrastructure through:

  1. Integrating robust healthcare methods with efficient systems and procedures for equitable and sustainable health outcomes.
  2. Educating the marginalized community and spreading awareness to raise health standards and allow people to articulate and demand better services.
  3. Implementing diagnostic procedures, building mobile and stationary rural and urban clinics, and streamlining health systems to improve efficiency.
  4. Community mobilisation through self-help groups, farmers’ clubs, youth clubs and other community groups.
  5. Community outreach activities through IEC (Information Education Communication) and BBC (Behaviour Change Communication) to improve service utilisation patterns.

HPPI’s core areas of intervention are:

  1. Community Health: To improve access to essential health services and education in marginalised people and focus on maternal, reproductive, neonatal diseases along with hygiene, sanitation and nutritional disorders.
  2. Communicable diseases: Prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis among high-risk populations and link infected individuals to appropriate health care services and facilitate self- and community care and awareness.
  3. Non Communicable diseases: Reduce adverse health impacts of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes.
