About

SEWA Rural started with a 30-bed hospital in Jhagadia. Over the years, the work expanded into community-based health care. The successful management of the primary health centre and delivery of safe motherhood and newborn care at the doorstep, covering entire Jhagadia, were some of the main accomplishments. A comprehensive eye-care programme was started for good low-cost eye care. Later, a training centre in primary health care, a vocational training centre and the women empowerment programme with income generation was established
