The sheer vastness and geo-spatial diversity of the country also make it difficult to meet the healthcare needs of the entire population. With the pandemic further highlighting the need to strengthen the healthcare system, it has become imperative to shift focus on last mile delivery to rural areas, universal health coverage, public health, and preventive healthcare.

It is well recognized that improvement in health status of population is both an important means of sustaining economic and social development as well as an end in itself. While India has made rapid strides in the health sector since independence, data from NFHS-5 indicates that access to healthcare still remains a challenge.



Bhartiya Krishi Avmsvasthya Vikas Sansthan Trust  launched its women empowerment programme in 2005 to reach out to marginalised and socially-excluded women and adolescent girls. The aim since then has been to capacitate them through innovative community practices, support them in education and livelihood, development of life skills, empower them to seek healthcare and bring sustainable changes in the community, and also engage men and boys in creating a gender-equal society.

Bhartiya Krishi Avmsvasthya Vikas Sansthan Trust  aim has been to address the concern through a simple but effective approach involving the community. Through innovative community practices, the programme seeks to make the marginalised and socially-excluded women and adolescent girls realise their inner strength and individual and collective self-esteem.

The programme aims to enhance their access to basic healthcare, nutrition, and knowledge about the different government schemes and bring an overall improvement in the quality of their lives. Potential women entrepreneurs are identified and supported with dedicated programmes to build an ecosystem for them to progress and excel.
