About The Organization

MAMTA, a movement initiated by a renowned paediatrician, Dr Sunil Mehra, began by designing interventions for the underprivileged communities in Tigri, an urban slum in New Delhi in the year 1990. Registered on December 28th 1990, MAMTA envisioned itself as a leading national and global organization supporting and advocating for rights of the marginalized communities. Since its inception, MAMTA has embarked on a set of initiatives focusing on building capacities, forging partnerships, creating networks and actions that advance political commitment and investment in health and rights of the marginalized.

MAMTA has promoted strategic solutions, policies and programming, research and global learning in the fields of Maternal Newborn Child Health and Nutrition, Young People’s Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, HIV, TB and Non Communicable Diseases, with special focus on promoting rights, gender equality and equity.

Today, MAMTA mobilizes community, strengthens health systems, networks and conducts policy level advocacy in close partnership with the government and public health systems, civil societies, academic institutions, corporate sector and community at large. MAMTA also serves South and South East Asia region as a technical support in addressing health and development issues.

Envisioned by Dr Sunil Mehra, the institute initiated its work in Tigri, an urban slum in Delhi. MAMTA provided clinical and counselling services to women and children to improve pregnancy outcomes and early childhood growth. In 1990 MAMTA formalised as an institution standing for ‘maternal love and care’ now also encompassing ‘adolescence care’.

The organization expanded geographically across 218 districts of India with the objective of changing lives at scale. MAMTA intensified its community involvement and included participation from adolescents, men and other stakeholders through policy level advocacy. MAMTA encourages ethical technological innovation in health, research and evidence building and has galvanized civil society partnership for the advancement of marginalized communities including pregnant and lactating mothers, children (0-2 years), young people including adolescents (10-24 years) and people living with HIV/AIDS/TB within the overall paradigm of rights and gender justice. Working with men and boys has been an essential part of every program. MAMTA congregates likeminded individuals, governments, institutes and groups to address global health challenges by developing innovative strategic solutions.
