WEP HEALTH The vision of WEP cannot be achieved without focusing on health especially mother & child health therefore health initiatives were taken at schools & community levels. The focus was also given to the children under difficult circumstances that is street living, trash-picker and special children.
WEP approaches have also contributed greatly to key health activities in hygiene, water and sanitation and disease prevention. Some areas have also been identified where the approach is seen to have a great and lasting impact such as:
- Health Education and Promotion in Schools.
- Environmental Health
- Occupational health
- Reproductive Health:
WEP believes Reproductive Health as one of the basic rights of women. It works towards attainment of the whole range of preventive, primitive and curative services which includes information, education and communication (IEC), and counseling. The different conditions for which such services must be made available include ante-natal, delivery and post-natal period, infertility, abortion, reproductive tract infections, STDs and HIV/AIDS and contraception etc. CEDAW convention is a governing document regarding the protection of women rights in all WEP programs and projects.
