Health behaviour is extremely diverse and depends on many variables. In developing countries like India, it is also a function of education as well as more sophisticated theories of application of individual choice in health behaviour and their belief in what determines their health – internal or external factors.
Research has also shown that behaviour change is one of the most difficult things to achieve and yet behaviour change at the individual level has the huge potential to impact the health of communities.
It is with this background that the project embarked in the key areas of maternal and child health in which to change health seeking practices and health seeking behaviour.
The community health team are trained to conduct structured awareness programme for the women and adolescent girls through two structured programmes - parenting and the citizenship programme for adolescent girls.
