    The World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated on April 7 every year through collective efforts of World Health Organization, Civil Society and Non Government Organization (NGO). In the context of developing nation such as India, the day provides an opportunity to address chronic health issues of citizens through preventive measures such as awareness sessions and curative measures such as health camps. This day is of great significance to rural villages of India which face a number of health issues due to lack of adequate access to health care, limited awareness, higher rate of tobacco and alcohol use, socio economic factors and stigma and superstition associated with health issues.

    AROH Foundation through the support of HDFC Bank under its unique initiative named Integrated Village Development is creating a sustainable model of development in 18 villages of Uttar Pradesh through a holistic approach in the area of Women Empowerment, Skill Development, Awareness on Health, Hygiene and Sanitation, Livelihood and overall socio economic development. In this perspective a week long campaign was conducted in the remote villages of Uttar Pradesh which are vulnerable to chronic health ailments such as Diarrhea, Typhoid, Hepatitis B, Malnutrition, Anemia, Malaria, Dengue etc. During the campaign Health Camps and Programs were conducted in these villages and approximately 1600 villagers directly benefitted from the awareness camp and sessions. One of the key highlights of the campaign was that approximately 50 % of the beneficiaries comprised of women and children and they are mostly affected by the above mentioned diseases.

    The campaign received an overwhelming response from the villages with participation of key stakeholders comprising of Gram Pradhan, ANM, Anganwadi workers, Government School Teachers, Community Leaders, and Doctors from Government Hospital etc.
