HEALTH – WELL WOMAN PROJECT

well woman project inside page

At URJA, through the Well Woman Project, we are building our resources to provide physical and psychological health care support and counseling for marginalized and vulnerable women and children.

Migrant women, women in prostitution nd women in distress often suffer from physical, sexual and psychological abuse. It gravely impacts their physical, reproductive, and mental health. Alcoholism and substance abuse within the family, especially among husbands further aggravates the problem limiting their access to health and other support services.

OVERALL OBJECTIVES OF THE WELL WOMAN PROJECT

Develop health related prevention programs for the physical, mental and social well being of  marginalised women.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES :

  • Ensure access to primary health care and counselling to community members.
  • Build a cadre of trained counselors to provide individual and group therapy sessions to women.
  • Conduct regular training and education programs on health, hygiene and HIV/AIDS.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

"The health camp was very useful as there is no dispensary in our community. The doctors were very nice and gave us free medecines. URJA should regularly hold such camps"
