Project Description

Company continues to adopt a multi-pronged approach towards improving public health and hygiene. To promote a hygienic environment through prevention of open defecation and reduce incidence of water-borne diseases, 7,494 Individual Household Toilets (IHHT) were constructed in 24 districts of 16 States in collaboration with the respective State Governments/District sanitation departments. With this, a total of 31,473 IHHTs have been constructed so far in Company’s catchment areas. In addition, 23 community toilets were constructed/ renovated in Bihar, West Bengal and New Delhi. Along with sanitation infrastructure development, special focus was given to awareness campaigns to create demand and drive behavioural change.

To make potable water available to local communities in four districts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Reverse Osmosis (RO) water purification plants were set up in villages with poor quality water. 15 new RO plants were established in 2017-18 taking the total to 101, which provided safe drinking water to over 120,000 rural people.

The Company continued to enhance awareness on various health related issues through a network of 348 women Village Health Champions (VHCs) who covered nearly three lakh women, adolescent girls and school children during the year. The programme is operational in seven districts of Uttar Pradesh and four districts of Madhya Pradesh. The VHCs conducted over 7,000 village meetings and participated in over 4,000 group events, apart from making door-to-door visits focusing on aspects like sanitation, menstrual and personal hygiene, family planning, diarrhoea prevention and nutrition. Through Company’s ‘Savlon Swasth India Mission’, a combination of audio-visual aids, games and practical training was leveraged to encourage healthy hygiene habits. Nearly 14 lakh children from around 3,300 schools in 18 towns were covered during the year. Additionally, access to hand washing was enabled through the unique ‘ID Guard’ initiative to over 3.5 lakh children in 1,000 schools. Nearly 1.36 lakh beneficiaries were covered under Mother and Child Health initiative aimed at improving the health-nutrition status of women, adolescents and children.
