Health Training

Health Worker Training: The training is residential for two years for tribal girls with a minimum qualification of 10th Std. It is a certified course under BSS, which allows them to work in other private hospitals, should they want to. They have learnt enough to be able to go the remote villages to spread their knowledge of health as well as treat minor illness in the field. They now plan and implement the community health program too

Health Auxiliary Training:. These 25 barely literate tribal ladies come from 21 villages and they have been selected by the villagers. They are capable of weighing babies, register births and deaths, teach the village about nutrition and sanitation, treat diarrhea and respiratory illness. They are the cornerstone of the health programs and they cater to about 15,000 tribals in the remote villages. With the new initiatives like hypertension care  they now play a key role as a community development facilitator.
