Community Health


The health of a society is dependent on the economical situation of the people and the nutritional intake that they take. In India the state has a major responsibility of providing the health services, and its state is dismal – the infant and maternal mortality rate remains high, the health infrastructure and service provisioning is bad and the epidemics continue to take its toll (be it diarrhea or malaria or malnutrition).

The picture is gendered with seventy percent women having poor body mass index and anemic. The maternal deaths continue to get unreported. And disasters and emergencies have no preparedness.

The Public-private partnerships models are being experimented by the State and there is almost no control over the private sector. It is the need of the hour for more community health people to engage actively and make health rights a participative agenda – unless health workers are not capacitated the health infrastructure will continue to be deficient to people’s needs and lack accountability.
