Working with the Baigas

Working with the Baigas

Working with the Baiga tribes in Chhattisgarh SAMERTH addressed the issue of lack of access to health services and lack of awareness among the tribal group on health and hygiene.

With efforts of the SAMERTH team and community participation the tribal people were able to access government health facilities of which 135 are men and 104 are women. From non- availability of information and lack of access to now tribal women and men accessing health services is a significant achievement.

This was possible through heath camps that were organised in Khurdhar, Thatidhar, Aamadob and Lamni panchayats.

One of the principal elements in organising these health-camps was that through our insistence and rapport with the health system of the region, we got the participation of doctors and other health personnel of the Primary Health Centres. Through these efforts the tribal people are on a sustainable basis access Primary health care and treatment.
