Health Awareness Programme

Health Awareness Programme

Towards creating a healthier society by popularizing preventive measures, GREAT Trust organizes awareness programs on various issues of health and hygiene.

GREAT Trust brings necessary healthcare to the ultra-poor in remote and hard to reach areas of Vellore, Anaicut and Kaniyambadi Blocks in Vellore District. Towards creating a healthier society by popularizing preventive measures, GREAT Trust organizes awareness programs on various issues of health and hygiene. Our health programs focus on two important things:

  1. Developing healthy habits and
  2. Connecting children’s with services when they help.

Towards creating a healthier society by popularizing preventive measures, GREAT Trust organizes awareness programs on various issues of health and hygiene. For this purpose, Our NGO makes use of visual media which communities are familiar with, like street plays, puppet shows etc. Another strategy employed is involving children and youth in awareness programs like rallies, debates etc. because, children are the best messengers to carry the message to their parents, family and other community members. Health-weeks and health camps are also generally organized in villages for different age groups.

Information about the conduct of health awareness sessions and camps is widely canvassed by our NGO well in advance. These sessions and camps are organized in coordination with the community keeping their time and other constraints in mind. Through these activities, our NGO ensures that such programs reach the maximum number of people.
