SNEHA is a secular, Mumbai-based non-profit organization addressing four major areas of public health - Maternal and Newborn Health, Child Health and Nutrition, Sexual and Reproductive Health, and Prevention of Violence against Women and Children .. SNEHA works towards the vision of realizing healthy and safe urban communities in the informal settlements of Mumbai and beyond. – Our work currently covers the most deprived informal settlements in Mumbai and three adjoining regions: Thane, Kalyan Dombivali and Mira Bhayander.
Our approach is two pronged:We work at the community level to empower women and slum communities to be catalysts of change in their own right and also collaborate with existing public health systems and health care providers to create sustainable improvements in urban health.
SNEHA considers youth to be an important constituency to work with. Health, nutrition and right perspective towards gender equality developed during adolescence is extremely important as it is a crucial determinant of the health of future adult citizens. 'EHSAS' stands for Empowerment, Health, and Sexuality for Adolescents.
