Haath Mein Sehat (HMS) seeks to address the need for health interventions that concern a broad range of health issues. In order to meet this need, HMS proposes to pilot a Community Health Worker (CHW) program in Hubli, India during the summer of 2012. CHWs will provide front-line medical advice and care that is not easily accessible to slum community residents and will involve the community in order to create an effective and sustainable program.
