Tribal health care program provides preventive and curative primary health care to the tribal communities of approximately 180 tribal villages in the Peth and Trimbak taluka of Nasik district. Some of these tribal villages lack the basic infrastructure such as roads, electricity and water. The government health care centers are at long distance and not easily accessible. Hence, health has always been compromised and overlooked. Niramaya initiated its activities in 2008 and since then it has reached almost 40,000 tribal villagers every year.

Program Achievements:

  • Two static clinics and a mobile medical van in Peth taluka and 3 mobile medical vans in Trimbak taluka are running to cater the health needs of surrounding villages.
  • It provides primary care with medication, and conducts Gynaec, Injection Tetanus Toxiod , Orthopaedic , and Eye screening camps as needed.
  • Health awareness sessions were an important part of  this program
  • Tribal youth were trained on health awareness sessions and were engaged for not only creating health awareness sessions but also providing basic health services.
  • Focus of the sessions included dispelling myths and misconceptions that are highly prevalent in these tribal communities, provision of safe drinking water and improved sanitation practices.
