  Health and Family Welfare  
     
 

Only a healthy person may be a good citizen of the country. GNA repeatedly emphasises that be adopting healthy practices and keeping the immediate environment clean, one can stay healthy and free of diseases.

Even today health services are inaccessible for a poor rural people. Rural women are the worst sufferers as they suffer from pregnancy related complications for the lack of health services. GNA is running a hospital to make health services available to the rural people, particularly pregnant women, children and general people. Hospital workers also tour to some village in the operational area to make health services available.

To promote the norm of small families with a view to contain fast increasing population, GNA is creating awareness among the rural residents in 42 villages of Aligarh, Hathras, Etah, Bulandshahar, Badaun and Pilibhit districts. Issues like need of family planning, and means of family planning and their use are taken up in the awareness drives.

Another mean to promote family planning is organisation of fairs on reproductive and child health on a regular basis. Apart from awareness generation, these fairs also provide service to the pregnant women and children through qualified doctors. Precautions to be undertaken during pregnancy are explained through posters. It is emphasised that deliveries must be carried out through trained dais and in case of any complication the women must be taken to the primary health centre.

With a view to protect residents in urban and rural areas of the operational area from HIV/AIDS, awareness camps are organised periodically. Doctors and social workers tell in the people in detail in these camps the reasons of HIV/AIDS and the precautions that they may take to protect themselves from the dreaded diseases. Emphasis is laid to remind the people that by having sexual relations only with their wives they can save themselves from the disease and the family will remain happy and content. The people are also told that HIV/AIDS does not spread by touch and now treatment of AIDS is possible.
