Targeting 26 villages and 33 schools, health camps and sessions are helping people to make informed health choices. We have been advocating various issues that have brought change in the behaviour of people towards their health. In association with Chambal Fertilisers, SHARP NGO has been running a Comprehensive Health Care Program in Kota District of Rajasthan for the past three years.
The programme in its initial stages engaged stakeholders to participate and gathering of people for maximizing the impact. This process included involvement of Health workers, conducting training workshops for them, discussing their basic requirements and the ways that could improve their health conditions.
SHARP conducted capacity building program for school teachers. Since sustainability and success of any educational program depends solely on the levels of training and passion of teachers, so in this phase, appointed teacher coordinators from the schools were sensitized on the importance of the program and trained on the methodology of the execution.

SHARP, in association with Johnson and Johnson, are starting project ‘PARICHAY’ for adolescent girls on menstrual health and hygiene in Delhi. This project is already going on in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala; we plan to expand into more states.
To impart accurate and reliable information to adolescent girls on topics identified as important to their health & well-being, it often being the case that basic information is not easily accessible.
Topics covered will be:
• Introduction to female anatomy and reproductive system
• Menstrual Health and Hygiene
• The right age for marriage
Each session comprising of adolescent girls from 6th to 12th standard.
Before the sessions, one teacher will be trained by a gynecologist associated with the Menstrual Health and Hygiene Programme. The teacher will help the girls clarify any doubts and answer any questions to do with menstrual health and hygiene once the sessions are over. A question box will be placed in the school to help the girls open up. The teacher will be certified as a nodal teaching coordinator by SHARP.
