Project Description

REACH: Initiated in 2016 under the aegis of Tornascent Care Institute, the Child centric Health Care Program “REACH” - Reach EAch CHild has three major pillars: (a) SHAISHAV (b) JATAN and (c) MUSKAN. REACH program progressed significantly in the current year at all the four centres and across all the three pillars with increase in the scope and reach. Under the first pillar of the program “Shaishav”, so far 266 paediatric camps covering 341 villages and 51,000+ underserved children (in the age group of 6 months to 6 years) were conducted to obtain their base line health status, identify and treat anaemia and malnutrition as well as provide specialised treatment to those identified with Annual Report 2017-18 38 cardiac, neurological, respiratory and the like disorders. About 83% of the children were cured of their anaemic condition, around 73% of children were pulled out of severe malnourishment and 670 cases were provided specialised treatment. Coverage of Shaishav was expanded through OPD vans and to incl de children upto the age of 18 years. Till 31st March, 2018, 39,000+ children were provided free of cost treatment including the operative and consultation costs at referral hospitals under this expanded coverage. “Jatan”, the second pillar of the program, focuses on providing paediatric care through well equipped Paediatric centres. 4 such centres have been set up at Sugen, Dahej, Balasinor and Indrad which are supporting the basic medical needs of children in these four areas. Treatment by doctors, medicines & basic laboratory tests are provided free of cost to children in the age group of 0-18 years. 54,500+ children have benefitted till 31st March, 2018. Under “Muskaan”, counselling and support is being provided to the adolescent girls near Sugen for menstrual hygiene and sanitation by giving them free health and hygiene kits which include sanitary pads, soap, shampoo, etc. About 4,000 adolescent girls of 70 villages between 11-18 years of age are being provided kits on monthly basis.
