Educational Material on Health (Hindi)
The series of health education manuals, titled Swasthya ki Khoj Mein (In Search of Good Health) were created with the following objectives:
- Develop an understanding of health from a gender, class, and caste perspective.
- Recognize women's experiences and existing knowledge on health-related issues.
- Enable women to see their health problems in the context of their own lives, and empower them to take greater control over their own lives.
- Link women’s personal experiences to larger political issues related to control over women’s health.
The manuals are meant for facilitators, teachers and health workers, working with women’s groups, literacy, post-literacy and continuing education programmes.
