“For poor people, health is also a crucially important economic asset. Their livelihoods depend on it. When poor people become ill or injured, the entire household can become trapped in a downward spiral of lost income and high health-care costs”. – World Health Organization
Our goal is to achieve universal and equitable access to health. SATYA Shakti Foundation bridges the gap between rural communities and primary health care by providing access and awareness to help people improve their health behaviors. Our healthcare initiatives aim to improve accessibility, availability and affordability of essential healthcare services. We build healthy communities to reduce the impact of illness on wellbeing, earning capacity and overall prosperity.
Major Programs Under “Health” Initiatives :
1- SATYA Shakti e-Clinic
SATYA Shakti Foundation in association with M-Insure has launched SATYA Shakti e-Clinic for providing affordable healthcare consultation services to people in rural areas. The objective of this initiative is to provide tele medicine consultation to rural people in their regional languages. Poor basic medical care in remote areas has been of great concern in recent years. A number of SATYA Shakti e-Clinics are operational and catering to the underserved populations in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and HP.
2- SATYA Shakti Vending Machine
According to the National Family Health Survey of 2015-2016, there are around 336 million Menstruating women in India. Among them only 121 million use a sanitary pad or sanitary napkin during their periods; that is barely 36% of the menstruating female population. There can be many reasons that just 36% of women make use of sanitary pads, but the prime reason is that they don’t have access to the feminine/ sanitary pads.
Addressing all such concerns of women, the Sanitary Napkin Vending Machine can be of great benefit to women. With an aim to strengthen women’s health in rural areas, SATYA Shakti foundation designed and implemented the Menstrual Hygiene Management program under which “SATYA Sakhi vending Machines” are installed in every e-clinics along with educational initiatives to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene and break many myths and stigmas attached with it.
