Project Title : Women’s Health and AIDS Awareness Project
Description of the Project and people involved
In India cancer is the third leading cause of death so we are doing awareness as well as diagnosis camps for cancer. Cervical cancer is the commonest cancer in India. The Over- Forty Women’s Health Project is making women aware and motivating them to go for check-ups regularly. We teach them self-examination for breast cancer. Women are always neglected by the community and also by family members, and even by the women themselves. Women always ignore their health problems because they always think about economy and give the family priority. We want to make community members aware of HIV Aids by doing street plays. Sex education is offered through residential camps for school and college students as well as drop outs in the community. We are also working in the tribal village of Thakar. We will do all the above programs in the tribal village plus addiction programs. In Pune there is an addiction centre to which we will admit five very poor people. Staff includes two doctors, two health workers and five women for the street play. We will pay the drama group by how many street plays they do in the above slums and tribal village. We would like to pay Rs/- 1,000 for each play. Objectives of the Project
To decrease morbidity rate of women by cancer
To give self confidence in health knowledge
To free people from addiction and prevent it
