Why do we need Pragati?

Lack of education and skillset

Limited knowledge and skillset of health workers in maternal and child care which results in no to less information dissemination and poorly health aware communities

Insufficient Training

Limited and unscheduled introductory and refresher training sessions result in outdated knowledge acquisition and dissemination

Non-engaging methods of training

Traditional lecture based training methods(non-visual mode) results in inability to understand complex healthcare concepts and non-engaging training sessions

Poor Sharing of Sensitive Information

Difficulty in imparting sensitive health care information (sexual wellness, family planning, etc) to community members

Lack of Contextual Knowledge

No resources to learn and share best contextual health practices amomgst the health workers
