A secular, Mumbai - based non - profit organisation, SNEHA believes that investing in women's health is essential to building viable urban communities. SNEHA targets four large public health areas - Maternal and Newborn Health, Child Health and Nutrition, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Prevention of Violence against Women and Children.
Its approach is two pronged: It recognises that in order to improve urban health standards, its initiatives must target both care seekers and care providers. It works at the community level to empower women and slum communities to be catalysts of change in their own right and collaborate with existing public health systems and health care providers to create sustainable improvements in urban health.
Today, SNEHA is a 350+ person strong and progressive organization that works closely with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai. We do innovative work in the urban slums to reduce maternal mortality, newborn mortality, malnutrition and domestic violence. And at our core remains the belief that the cycle of ill health can and must be broken by creating an urban society whose foundation is built on a healthy and empowered populace.
