Organization Description:
The target population:
Fatehpur District is one of the most backward in India. Situated in Uttar Pradesh, between Kanpur and Allahabad, it serves a population of about 2.5 million (according to 2001 census), spread over an area of 4,152 square kilometres. The district has several unenviable health statistics to its credit. Women and children, being the most vulnerable members of the population are the hardest hit. Maternal and infant mortality rates are unacceptable high, obstetrics complications like rupture uterus, stillbirths, anemia and ante partum hemorrhage are common. Neonatal tetanus, a disease almost wiped away from most parts of the world through routine immunization, is prevalent in the district. The major diseases are TB, malaria, sexually transmitted disease and HIV/AIDS.
The hospital is a forty bedded one with an emphasis on community health and participation.

Over the past four years, there has been a marked reduction in obstetric complications. There are more than 100 hundred deliveries each month. Free medical camps and eye camps are held regularly. The Community Health and Development programme of the hospital has been working in 85 villages for more than a year. This programme focuses on strengthening existing health structures within the village, namely the ASHA worker, a grass root level health worker instituted by the Government in each village. The CHASINI project targets the same population and aims to create awareness and give counselling in HIV and gender issues. The Community Department plans to expand its services to other blocks and also to train the villagers in income generating programs to raise their socio-economic status.The hospital has now become a major health provider in the district and the Government acknowledges the contribution of the hospital and its committed staff in changing the health scenario of the district
