 Nutrition

 

Mokhada, a taluka located in Palghar district of Maharashtra has long been known for malnutrition amongst children between age group of 0-6 years.

 

Taking its focus on rural development ahead, Indiabulls Foundation has adopted the entire Mokhada taluka with an intention to curb its growing malnutrition rate along with improving the health conditions and bring about sustainable change amongst the people of Mokhada. More than 15000 (children + pregnant ladies + lactating mothers) individuals are continuously benefitting every month through the IBF nutrition programme.

 

The implementation plan includes direct interventions through:

• Providing nutritional supplement (Paushtik Aahar) to primarily the target population of children in the age group of 6 months to 6 years, pregnant women and lactating mothers. Paushtik Ahar ensures to supplement the existing local food practices and confirms a nutritious addition in the daily dietary intake of the women and children
• Initiation of Free Mobile Medical vans that will cater to primary medical needs of the people living in villages without access to essential medical aid
• Conducting mega health camps in schools and villages so that regular medical interventions will help in promoting a healthy living among the people
• Creating awareness and sensitisation with the help of IEC’s to ensure sustainability in our approach and helping build a healthy future for the locals

 

Indiabulls Foundation involves the entire community in this programme so as to make the community accountable for their growth, progress and also their sustained health development.

 

Healthcare

 

To cater to almost 84,000 residents there are only 4 Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC's) and 1 Rural Hospital in Mokhada taluka. The lack of proper connectivity has majorly affected the health conditions of locals here.

 

This limited availability of basic health care prompted Indiabulls Foundation to start its JanSwasthya Kalyan Vahika (Mobile Medical Vans) initiative. Jan Swasthya Kalyan Vahika is a community centric project initiated by IBF with an objective of providing primary health care services to the under-privileged population through a medically equipped mobile van. 4 Mobile Medical Vans currently are running, covering all 4 divisions of Mokhada providing treatment for scabies, anemia, nutritional deficiency, infestations etc…Good quality medicines at doorstep coupled with professional diagnosis has started immediately to improve the health conditions of local people of Mokhada each day.

 

The vans cover 4 divisions of Ase, Morhanda, Washala and Khodala. Each van runs 6 days a week visiting 24 locations per week and diagnosing 150 to 200 patients per day.
