SATHI is the action centre of Anusandhan Trust based in Pune, which has evolved from CEHAT. The SATHI team has been working since 1998 mainly in Maharashtra and West M.P. on community health worker training, fostering grassroots health rights actions through partnerships with civil society organisations and facilitating local, district, state and national level advocacy on health issues combined with action oriented research and publication. SATHI works with a definite rights based approach, promoting the perspective that instead of substituting for public systems or replacing them, it is essential to make these systems accountable and effective through organised and sustained public actions.
