Proposed Project Description

-   Target beneficiaries & their needs and constraints (brief description of the key target beneficiary group, including key characteristics/demographics and what are the key risk/vulnerability factors for this group) – Target beneficiaries - Children (0-18 years), Pregnant women, Women and men of all ages. The Life Expectancy rate is just 39 years, as compared to the national average of 66 years. The infant mortality rate is 66. In the National Family Health Survey-4 conducted by the state government for the Mumbai Suburban areas, it has been seen that among women who gave birth in the five years preceding the survey, 82%received antenatal care from a health professional (82% from health personnel) for their last delivery. Only 31% of women received full antenatal care while 8% received financial assistance under Janani Suraksha Yojana for birth deliveries conducted by an attendant. Only 34% of the children received a health check after birth from a doctor/nurse/LHV/ANM/midwife/other health personnel within 2 days of birth. The key risks to the beneficiaries is that in absence of appropriate and available services, there is a higher chance of morbidity and mortality in the community.

-   

 The problems to be resolved and the needs to be met – The problems to be resolved for a population of 45,000 individuals and around 8400 households in Shivaji Nagar is that there is no Health Post and only one dispensary. The nearest Health Post is a km away from the cluster. There is one maternity home but is 7 km away from Shivaji Nagar. Another major challenge is that there is no government hospital in the area. The nearest dispensary currently provides services to an overwhelming population of 66,881 compared to the rest of Mumbai where there are 27,438 people per dispensary. We are urgently addressing the issues of malnutrition, anaemia, and death caused by preventable diseases (pneumonia and diarrhoea). Any need of medicine or advice they either have to go to Shatabdi or Rajawadi or also Sion Hospital which caters to a huge population located around a 2.5 – 5 kilometre range from the Shivaji Nagar community. Thus, there is a need for antenatal care (ANC) clinic for pregnant women and Gynaecology clinic for adolescent girls and women.
