http://newconceptinfosys.com/ncwebsite/sites/default/files/picture%20card.pngSince 2010, with support from the Madhya Pradesh Technical Assistance and Support Team (MPTAST), the PLA approach based on community mobilisation was implemented in Madhya Pradesh.
Issues of maternal and neonatal health, nutrition and hygiene are addressed in a participatory manner through 22 community meetings in one project cycle.
During the 22 community-level meetings on health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (HNWASH), those community members who have been participating are meant to share key discussion points with other community members and also motivate them to attend future meetings. Apart from this, two major community meetings are also held, wherein a work plan is prepared in collaboration with community leaders for streamlining and implementation.

Training materials including meeting manuals, picture cards and flex banners etc. have been developed. New Concept has also developed ICT content for the project including design, development and programming of an online MIS and user manual, redesign of the Sanjhi Sehat website and preparation of a web repository of materials produced under the project linked to the main website and freely available to Sanjhi Sehat project staff, trainers and facilitators.
