Health initiatives are focused on women and child health. It bridges paucity of health services both at home and work. Poor water sanitation facilities coupled with extremely poor hygiene practice negatively impacts health. Due to barriers posed by system and economic constraint, beneficiaries depend heavily on local quack doctors. NMCS works to improve the scenario through facilitating access of health services and improving hygiene related practice of the community. With information and access to maternal, child and reproductive health significant empowerment of women is achieved in target communities.
