HEALTH, NUTRITION AND SANITATION | Community Health and Nutrition >>> Capacity Building of TBAs and Local Practitioners


As the ultimate aim of the health programme is to make it a people run and managed programme, capacity building of the traditional birth attendants or dais and the local health practitioners is necessary to widen the net of reliable health providers.

TBAs are trained in safe delivery practices. The contents of their training include symptoms of pregnancy, diet of expecting women, importance of taking weight regularly, getting T.T. injection, maintaining warm chain and feeding colostrums to the baby within an hour of birth. At the end of the training, the TBAs are provided with a delivery kit with modern implements. Similarly local practitioners have also been trained in taking blood pressure, promoting ORS during diarrhoea and dehydration and other simple cures.

The Sahiyya movement Programme of National Rural Health Mission was undertaken by Badlao Foundation in partnership with Jharkhand Health Society since 1996 covering 118 panchayats (1056 villages and 1666 tolas) in four blocks of Jamtara, Narayanpur, Nala and Kundahit of Jamtara district. It formed 270 village health committees. The Key Accomplishments were:


  • Sensitised and mobilized the youth through formation of 156 peer groups to instill sense of social responsibility and common development.

  • Conducted training and workshops on community organization, RH to build and enhance capacities of the DISHA team.

  • Identified and trained peer educators on ARSH to strengthen their capacities in facilitating RH and other health related group meetings.

The objective was:

  • To provide quality reproductive and child health (RCH) services by following a life-cycle approach, particularly for those residing in remote and difficult areas in order to reduce maternal and child mortality and morbidity.

  • To provide gender and human rights issues and services to disadvantaged groups and give highest priority to adolescents.

  • To organize and empower Village Health Committees to develop Village Health Plan (VHP) with active involvement of the communities.
