Rally for Maternal Health and Dialogue with Health Authorities in Raichur

#JMS Maternal Health Campaign_2019

JMS in collaboration with Dalit Human Rights Forum Karnataka (DHRF-K) organised a district level Maternal Health rally at Sindhanur Taluk Hospital Sindhanur on 12th July 2019, demanding access to better reproductive and maternal health care services and pressing for stopping undue referrals to private health care facilities which incur heavy financial burden on women.

200 members of JMS  from 10 Villages (Paparaocamp, Dumti, Gonwara,Ulgunchi,Aynoor, Sultanapura, Balaganur, Buddinni, Ramathnala, Pothnal) of Sindhanur , Maski and Manvi Taluka marched across the streets of Sindhanur. Later, they demanded that the Taluka Health Officer (THO) and other officers come to listen to their grievances and pressed them to solve their problems.



Activist singers from Raichur District took part in the rally and sang few songs on Maternal Health. This Song is about the conditions of poor when they visit government hospital and how the doctors collect the money from the people


During district level maternal health public Dialogue Women from 10 villages discussed on various issues related to the denial  of access to the health services with Taluk Health officer. People placed a menorandum before the THO in the presence of two Doctors from two PHCs and other health representatives. They demanded that people’s demands be taken up for immediate action.
