Our programmes combat the causes and consequences of malnutrition among infants, adolescent girls, and pregnant and lactating women. Sustainable, multi-sectoral and inter-generational programme approaches tackle infant and child mortality, low body mass index and other micronutrient deficiencies among girls and women.
The programmes address both the underlying and immediate determinants influencing the nutritional status of women and children. Underlying determinants include food security, adequate care giving resources at maternal, household and community levels; access to health services and a safe and hygienic environment. Food and nutrient intake, feeding, care giving and parenting practices, and burden of infectious diseases consitute the immediate determinants.
We work closely with the government to design and test innovations, provide technical assistance and facilitate knowledge transfer.
Project Axshya (meaning ‘free of TB’) was launched in April 2010 as
the civil society component of a five year project funded by a Round 9
grant from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (The Global
Fund).The government is focusing on scaling up access to MDR-TB
diagnosis and treatment to over 750 million people by 2015. Axshya
aims to support the Government of India’s Revised National
Tuberculosis Control Programme to expand its reach, visibility and
effectiveness. It engaged community based providers to improve TB
services, especially for women and children, and marginalised,
vulnerable and TB- HIV co-infected populations. Axshya is
coordinated by two civil society representative organisations-
International Union against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease and South
EAST Asia Office and World Vision India. KHPT implemented it from
2010 to 2015 in Karnataka.
We partner with the government to improve outcomes of MNCH programmes.
We empower girls from underserved communities to claim their rights to health and education.
We empower marginalised women to lead a life without violence.
We facilitate public-private collaboration and community engagement for treatment of tuberculosis patients.
We catalyse reduction in malnutrition through better service delivery and norm and behaviour change.
We improve access to health, education, social protection and welfare services for vulnerable children.
We support at risk communities to reduce their vulnerability to HIV / AIDS and access care and services.
We work with communities and help build community institutions to enhance the power of marginalised groups to demand services and assert their rights and dignity.
