Community Manage Mother and Child Health Care Centres & Training of Community Health workers / TBAs

While the capacity of the official Nagarparkar Taluka Hospital operated by the Department of Health, Government of Sindh has noticeably improved in 2014-15 as a result of many previously vacant posts for doctors now being filled, the need for out- reach and community-based health interventions continues to remain a priority need of the people. As with instances in the 30 years, so too in 2014-15 Baanhn Beli operated three separate Mother and Child Care Centres at villages in Nagarparkar Taluka. The respective communities provided the premises and local personnel. Baanhn Beli, in cooperation with the Department of Health and Nagarparkar Taluka Hospital provided specialist expertise and supervision on a regular basis, apart from periodic campaigns of vaccination of infants, children and women against basic or infectious diseases. By a pleasant co-incidence, Dr. Shankar Lal Motwani, the Medical Superintendent of Nagarparkar Taluka Hospital who is a senior and active member of Baanhn Beli on a voluntary basis, is also the present elected President of Baanhn Beli for the 2015-16 term.
