Project Manager - CARE India


Project Manager - CARE India

Brief Note on Project:-

CAIRN India and CARE India intends to contribute to improving health status in the district of Barmer in Rajasthan and have developed a joint project that would primarily strengthen delivery of national health programs as well as mobilize communities for better health.

The project goal is to contribute to significant reductions in maternal and infant mortality in Barmer district. The project will also have additional focus on select infectious diseases in the operational area. Considering the methodological difficulties in measuring IMR and MMR at the scale of the project with a statistical significance, CARE would measure improvements in coverage and behaviors that are critical to enhance maternal and infant survival.

The geographic focus of the project will be the district of Barmer with direct intervention support in 3 blocks (Baitu, Sindhari and Dhorimanna) and district level support to government programs to scale up impact in remaining 5 blocks.

The project is proposed for a 5 year period with scope for course-correction as appropriate (however the targets for goals and outcomes will be set for 2017, so as to coincide with the national program cycle – 12th plan).

CARE will engage and mobilize women systematically at the community level and work with community leaders, existing Village Health Nutrition and Sanitation Committees, self-help groups (SHGs) and ASHAs. These will be leveraged to engage women in taking responsibility of their own health in a more systematic way. Appropriate behavior change communications programmes, capacity building and technical assistance from CARE India will be provided to provide impetus to these efforts.
