Mother and Child Health (MCH)

If recent statistics are any indication that the health status, especially that of mother and children can said to be less than satisfactory. Orissa has got the dubious distinction of having the highest IMR in the entire country which stands at 97 per 1,000 live birth. Similarly 350 mothers in every 1,000 die while giving birth to their babies. Despite many efforts at government and non-government levels various programmes aimed at population control have not succeeded. The ;less than spectacular results on Family Planning front can be attributed to high level of IMR , low status of women, strong preference for the boy child and rampant poverty . PYSO is contributing its bit in controlling the population by providing effective RCH services tot he target population. To set the things right a series of awareness camps were organised in PYSO in our operational area. In these programmes more than 500 women participated.

HIV /AIDS Awareness Camp

Over the past few years HIV/AIDS have become a dreaded discase and is spreading very fast. The rural areas of the district are also not immune from its grip. As far as the present level of knowledge is concerned there is no curative medicine for it. The only way our is to prevent it . Thus the organisation is trying its best to prevent the dreaded disease through awareness creation.
