We cannot deny the unique demands of women's health from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Their uniqueness is the function of our social development and the biology women evolve through.Acceptance of this fact is my point of departure.Awareness is the root of achievement.I plan to provide maternal health education to Female Community Health Volunteers( the community based women who are trained in this subject) on a regular basis,.This in fact is training of trainers.They will reach to individual mothers, potential mothers and their family members and discuss about the knowledge and skill they have.This includes information from conception to child rearing as child health cant be isolated from maternal health and birth spacing counselling to safe abortion.
Next step is access to health services.
Every month mothers who complete at least 4 ANC visits will be identified and one of them will be awarded( by lottery) by child's clothing. This will encourage mothers to go for ANC visits.
Every mother who gives delivery to a child in Hospital/ Health Centers will be provided with some money and a litre of oil. This indeed provides some help to mothers in taking healthy and nutritious food.But this practise will be for only two deliveries, so as to encourage mothers and families to limit the number of children.
The fund will be provided by community bank, which is set up by the health tax paid by people from the profit of their entrepreneurship.Apart from this depending upon the availability of funds several contests can be organized like healthy baby of the year, mother of the year etc
So basically the idea is not imposing the services from outside but indeed strengthening the self health seeking tendancy from with in the community.
