Campaigns for Raising Awareness

Most people particularly women and children, in rural parts of KP and FATA are unaware about health and hygiene practices. This makes it difficult for them to prevent various diseases such as polio, dengue fever, meningitis, malaria and hepatitis etc. To overcome health, hygiene and nutrition problems, SRSP organized “Awareness Raising Campaigns” in District Dir Upper, Chitral and Bajaur Agency. These campaigns helped in disseminating health and hygiene messages to the communities. A Large number of women and men participated in these campaigns that were conducted in various schools, communal places and Government buildings. The project is funded by PPAF and implemented by SRSP.
