mMitra Partners meet on 6th Sep 2014 at LTMG Hospital was attended by representatives from our NGO partners:- Committed Communities Development Trust, Niramaya Foundation, Apnalaya, Parivartansheel Sanstha, Mumbai Smiles, UAPHE and our Hospital Partners –LTMGH and BSES hospital. The partnerships that have been developed will help us leverage our strengths to reach out to maximum number of expectant and nursing mothers. The NGO partners with their long standing relationship with the community, hospital partners with their expertise and reach and technical partner with their medical expertise will ensure that women receive timed and targeted information that is relevant to their month of pregnancy or child’s age.
mMitra’s relevance was reiterated by all partners who acknowledged that even though urban women have access to health care services; the lack of access to correct, relevant and personalized information leads to maternal and child deaths.
