Awareness’ on AIDS/HIV/Anemia/Mental Health/Women & Child Health

India is a densely populated country where a large number of people live without access to the basic education and primary health facilities. The situation is more complex in rural villages comparing to the urban areas. Their houses are poorly established and do not have proper supply of water and electricity. They somehow manage little water from resources available at the distant places and hardly think of having shower, clean their cloths and renovate their shelters. In addition to their poor socio economic condition, another major cause of their sufferings is lack of education and public awareness As a result, they are malnourished and often fall sick. Due to poor economic condition they are not in a position to pay their medical bills and after little struggle, most of them pass away in their fifties.

DAWN can play an important role in promoting health awareness in this community. They work hand in hand with the local coordinators of the community organizations in organizing awareness camps for AIDS / HIV / Anemia / Mental Health / Women and Child Health through staging cultural show, Rally, Seminar and Exhibitions.

These kinds of activities help the otherwise ignorant and unaware community to empower them with the knowledge and resources to improve their overall quality of life.
