A secular, Mumbai-based non-profit organisation, SNEHA believes that investing in women’s health is essential to building
viable urban communities. SNEHA is 450+ person strong, innovative and progressive organization that works on health and
nutrition in urban slum pockets with women and their families. SNEHA follows the life-cycle approach to health and
nutrition, by intervening at critical junctures (adolescence, preconception, conception, pregnancy, postnatal, infancy and
toddlerhood, family planning) to ensure improved health and nutritional outcomes for women and children living in some
of Mumbai’s most vulnerable and deprived slums and in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) as well.
SNEHA recognises that, in order to improve urban health standards, our initiatives must target both care seekers and care
providers. We work with communities residing in informal settlements to empower women and communities to be
catalysts of change in their own right and collaborate with existing public health systems and health care providers to
create sustainable improvements in urban health. We have currently 11 programs running across SNEHA which are
Maternal and Newborn Health (MNH), Child Health and Nutrition (CHN) – Aahar, Empowerment, Health and Sexuality of
Adolescents (EHSAS), Prevention of Violence against Women and Children (PVWC) (e) SNEHA Centre, SNEHA Shakti, Healthy
Cities Project (HCP), Samagra, Palliative Care, Livelihood Generation, Central Operations, Research and IM.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
SNEHA’s Maternal and Newborn Health program seeks to improve the quality of delivery of maternal and neonatal health
care in urban slums by building an accountable healthcare system as well as to empower communities to be responsible for
addressing women’s and newborns’ integrated health needs.
The intervention model includes public health systems to improve referral linkages and to increase utilization of health care
services provided by them. The project adopts this approach and works to create a collective vision and facilitates
individuals, families, communities and health systems to realize that vision. The project aims to improve the health and
nutritional status of married women and of children under six years of age in vulnerable communities of Bhiwandi.
