Strengthening and Activating District Health System (SaHAS)

Following the earthquake, the relevance of mother group meeting and regular meeting of HFoMC has increased. Mother group meeting is vital, not only to create more awareness and to increase the demand for service, but also to prevent the delinking of community and health system. Likewise, the substantial improvement in the community health is not possible with the weak local governance. Thus to strengthen the community mobilization and local governance, the mothers group meeting needs to be invigorated and health facility management committee needs to be regular.  For the purpose of strengthening and re-activating mothers group and HFOMC, project SAHaS is being implemented in 72 VDCs of 9 earthquake affected districts(Lalitpur, Kavre, Dolakha, Dhading, Nuwakot, Gorkha, Ramechhap, Okhaldhunga and Solukhumbu).
