Projects on Health
Child health is a multifaceted issue, which is predominantly linked to a mother’s health conditions, her access to safe delivery conditions, the socio-economic status of the family and the healthcare system. ChildFund India supports community-based healthcare to address underserved children’s health needs from infancy to young adulthood, along with prenatal care and maternal health. For this, our health experts and dedicated staff, together, create smart solutions that adapt to the unique health challenges of communities across the country to ensure good health of children, adults and communities.
ChildFund India’s health interventions are implemented in 60 districts in 14 states..
SNEH works to improve nutrition in children living in marginalized communities by focusing on the first 1,000 days of their lives while supporting them till they are five years old. The key interventions of this project are behavioral changes at various levels from community to service providers, identification and referrals of pregnant mothers and undernourished children (severe acute malnutrition) to nutrition rehabilitation centers, identification and tracking of migrant families to provide antenatal care, postnatal care, and other health services through government service providers and outreach, follow-up of the beneficiaries with caregivers and providing positive parenting.

Prevention and Recovery from Infectious Diseases
Since 2008, ChildFund has been working with the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) through various interventions in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Our longstanding project, ‘Link Workers Scheme’ works with all groups facing vulnerability such as sex workers, partners of HIV+, etc. in selected rural districts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. For the past four years, the Targeted Interventions project has worked in hotspots directly with affected populations in semi-urban and urban areas of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. We reach out to people affected with HIV/AIDS with prevention measures such as the distribution of condoms and information, nutritional support, linkages to important government schemes, and also enable supportive community behavior.
