SATHI (Support for Advocacy and Training to Health Initiatives)
'SATHI is the action Centre of Anusandhan Trust evolved from CEHAT. The SATHI team originated in 1998 as part of CEHAT Pune and after working for more than 7 years as an action team in CEHAT, from 1st April 2005 has developed into full-fledged action centre of Anusandhan Trust with Headquarters in Pune.
Our Goal, Strategy
We at SATHI envisage a society, which has realized its right to health and health care-
- A society which has eliminated health inequities, by removing the structural barriers which today prevent the majority from accessing healthy living conditions and quality health care;
- A society which instead of the current pathological model of development, has adopted a developmental path which fosters health of both the people and their environment;
- A society where people, are not appendages of the health care system; are its prime movers and have universal access to appropriate health care as a human right.
To realize this long term goal, SATHI's strategy is to contribute as a team of pro-people health professionals, to the movement and initiatives towards such a society, by focusing on the aim of realization of health and health care as fundamental human rights.
SATHI's origin is to be traced to a small action-team in CEHAT, which since 1998, pioneered a collaborative Primary Health Care project with three People's Organizations. During the last 10 years this work has developed considerably, has moved beyond it's initial focus and now consists of many components-
A. Collaborative health initiatives with four people's organizations in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. Read more ....
B. Advocacy at broader level for Primary Health Care and Health Rights.
C. Training on Health Rights and in Community Health Initiatives
D. Action-research related to Health Advocacy. Read more ....
