Campaign on Maternal Health and Social Exclusion
The campaign had been initiated by Wada Na Todo Abhiyan (WNTA – UN Millenium Campaign in India) along with CHSJ and National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) to generate awareness and build perspective on health rights of marginalized communities across different states. CHSJ worked with NCDHR to orient these organisations to different dimension of human rights related to health rights, with a focus on maternal health related entitlements under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM). State level partners were trained last year to identify and document case studies of maternal health right violations. Public sharing meetings took place in three states namely – Bihar, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh. A compiled report has also been prepared for dissemination.
