In numerous senses one can say, the health of women and girls can reflect the basic health of the society just the way development of a society can be estimated by the development of the females of the society. But, both women and girls get least medical or social attention and their health and the nutritional condition is becoming worse and worse due to prevalent cultural and traditional practices. In the society where females are not entitled to basic rights, it becomes impossible for them to access the basic health services. Their eternal dependence on their male provider hardly let them take charge and get any medical facilities. It has been recorded that men tend to visit hospitals more frequently than women to treat their ill-health leaving women more vulnerable to undetected diseases and illnesses..
Two most painful conditions that continue to afflict women post childbirth are uterine prolapse and obstetric fistula. Also, the poor nutrition, especially during pregnancy and lactation cause iron deficiency and anaemia which threatens the survival of both the mother and child. India has contributed 20 % of all maternal death in the world in 1992-2006 and 20% of maternal death is on account of serious anaemia. In addition to this, millions of women die of cervix or Brest cancer just in India due to lack of awareness or late diagnosis. All these conditions or much more can be treated and assisted to a full recovery if just detected on time. That’s where we come in handy, our charity will address all the issues related to women health and nutrition. We appreciate and recognize how women have been the strongest pillar of the society. We here at Nayati want to give them the gift of a healthy and happy life.
Similarly, we know in many parts of India the birth of a girl child is not celebrated. We have seen the reduction in sex ratio, it has come down to 939 per 1000 males in 2011 as compared to 961 in 1971 and latest government data indicate the further decile in coming years. Which suggest our girls need attention more than ever. Since her birth, she is denied respect and she faces discrimination. She hardly enjoys the luxury of education or even the simplest right of healthcare. We at Nayati not just want to aware girls of their basic right to live but also want to educate people about this epidemic upon us. People who need to realize that having a girl child should be considered as a blessing and give them the opportunity to be an integral part of this movement. Good health which is s key criterion contributing to human well-being and economic growth should not be a privilege enjoyed by few. Adequate nutrition and care will help women and girls to be a productive member of the society. Come be a helping hand either by working as a volunteer or by donating your bit.
