Reproductive & Sexual Health Program for Urban & Rural Poor

Goal: Improved health and social status of poor women of rural and urban community

Thirty-two years in the field of reproductive health (RH), BWHC has emerged as an example in establishing accessible and affordable reproductive health service model for the marginalized women and children of the community. BWHC’s RH implementation model merges community and clinical services to meet the wide range of community needs. Through the Community Based Programs, BWHC focuses on programs with a strong bearing on critical human needs like health and health awareness building, and considers the community as an extended family, pooling its local knowledge and resources together to meet the communities’ basic health needs.

About 20% of rural households of BWHC catchments population lives in extreme poverty and these poor women of these households suffer persistently with serious diseases and complications leading to even death. Women experience the wrath of extreme poverty levels as they are the victims of discrimination within the family and in the society, they have to take care of the family members and remain indifferent to their own health and nutrition. This segment of rural population is at risk of sliding deeper into poverty as a result of health problems or natural disasters. BWHC has thus prioritized delivering support towards this community. BWHC believes that once adequate health services, knowledge, information, skills, health and reproductive rights of the women are delivered and seeps into the community, a development conscious society will be created thereby defying all odds that impinge their development potential.
