#Break The Chain #Project ICSH (Infection Control & Sanitation , Hygiene)
Rural India has nearly half the Covid caseload, but less than 10% of Covid treatment centers in the country. In this context, the role of frontline workers (ASHA workers, Anganwadi workers, ANMs) becomes immensely important for triaging and managing the disease.
Project ICSH seeks to support India’s frontline community health workers and pregnant mothers with a basic safety kit, a pulse oximeter, and a pair of thermometers and capacity building of Hand Hygiene, sanitation and IEC activity. Support that will allow health workers and pregnant mothers to mount an effective response to Covid-19 while ensuring their own safety.
*Basic Safety Kit to be provided to all frontline workers in a rural area. In addition to the safety kit, oximeters, and thermometers to be given to frontline workers associated with the Department of Health and Family Welfare (ASHA, ANMs, etc.).Training of Hand washing ,Infection Control , PPE kit use , Injection Safety to be provided all frontline workers .
Small acts when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. We urge you all to join hands with us by sponsoring as many kits as you can. You can make donations as low as INR 500. We also accept international donations.
If you believe in the cause, please do share the initiative with your friends, family and colleagues. If you are interested in contributing a larger sum, please reach out to us at -drdebabrata.dass@gmail.com.
How will the donation help?
● Increased safety of frontline workers
Frontline workers actively track and follow-up with millions of symptomatic and Covid-positive cases in rural areas daily. Unless their safety is ensured, more than half of India’s population is not safe. Yet, most remain unequipped and fall victim to the disease themselves. A basic safety kit will significantly reduce their risk of contracting Covid.
● Effective management of Covid caseload and timely patient referrals
Resource is very scared in rural West Bengal specially tea garden areas. Sanitizers, oximeters, and thermometers can help the frontline workers in identifying high-risk patients early enough, that will help to screen hospitalization. The same pulse oximeters can also be used to manage child pneumonia.
Therefore, Project ICSH not only aids in managing the current crisis but also hopes to leave a long-term impact in improving lives in rural India.
