Developing skills of health care workers

Sanjeevani

Over the years, one core gap that RPG Foundation has identified is the area of skilling of Health care workers. The proportion of nurses to people in India is 1 Nurse per 1200 people. WHO recommends a ratio of 1 nurse for every 100-150 people. Given this dire need, the Foundation formulated Sanjeevani – to mobilize women and youth to be trained as professional health care workers and nurses.

The program aims to skill developing youth and women with a dignified livelihood in the booming healthcare sector as patient care assistants, Auxilliary Nurses and Midwives (ANMs), General Nurses, Midwives (GNMs), Diploma in X-ray technology and Ultrasound assistance (DXUA).

Along with the medical training, emphasis is also laid on the grooming, English literacy and personality development. The beneficiaries are provided with employment avenues through collaborations with homecare placement agencies, hospitals and nursing homes.

In the first year, the project has been able to reach out to 297 beneficiaries in the communities around the Ceat locations at Bhandup, Halol and Nashik.
