Stakeholders: Local stakeholders for project implementation

Arogya Parivar, the award winning social enterprise of Novartis India aims to raise health awareness and addresses medical needs of rural population in 11 Indian states and a few countries in south Asia. Our scope was to enable the grassroot level health educators to perform effectively in context to the vision of the program. A needs assessment, followed by development of a customized capacity building module - including a training aid, trainer's guide and a participant guide – was the initial scope. We went on to perform interactive capacity building programs - national training of trainers and then regional trainings - resulting in motivated field workforce with concept clarity on aspects of behaviour change communication, social marketing, storytelling as key concepts.
