   HEALTH
Community Health has been one of the sectors identified as most problematic in the target areas. Poor sanitary conditions, improper drainage system, lack of safe water and unhygienic conditions are visible in almost all the villages of the intended target area. FACT strongly believes it is necessary that people realize these problems at first before proceeding further to improve their situation. Hence the major task taken by FACT was to make the people realize the problems they are living in and to prepare them to have a dialogue to find solutions on the specific problems after prioritizing them. FACT has done great efforts to improve health and hygienic conditions in the target villages through the following:
  • Sensitization regarding sanitation, health and hygienic behaviors.
  • Organization of health and hygiene education camps.
  • Provision of household latrines.
  • Provision of sanitary installations within schools.
  • Organization of medical camps to provide required health cares and Medicines.
  • Organization of medical checkup camps.
      

  
Free Medical camps were conducted in which 7213 persons were benefited and Free Medicines were distributed to 9842 persons. Family planning programmes were implemented for 839 families and 583 pregnant women were given assistance during pregnancy. 836 women were given educational classes for community health awareness. 523 families were benefited from construction of toilets and bathrooms. Also 2700 families were benefited from community drinking water tanks and irrigation canals.
THE CONSTRUCTION OF INDIVIDUAL TOILETS AND BATH ROOMS IN RURAL AREA UNDER THE RURAL SANITATION PROGRAMME: :
The sanitation is playing major role in reducing sickness and deaths out of infections diseases in the society, especially in rural areas. It has generally been observed that improvements in water supply and sanitation have a similar role to play in reducing the high level of morbidity and mortality that prevail in many places. Water alone does not bring sanitation or health, neither do latrines nor both. The poor people do not practice personal hygiene & environmental sanitation habits.

In our rural areas people have been using open land by the roadside and public places for toilets. They are living in miserable unhygienic conditions. In the rainy season water gets contaminated. Mainly women and old people have been suffering for the past several decades due to lake of proper sanitation facilities. During daytime women usually go miles together for their natural call. FACT wants to provide individual toilets and Bathrooms for poor and needy families in rural areas. With help of local Government and people FACT had constructed 200 individual units in our targeted villages.
