Revamping Jan Swasthya Abhiyan in Delhi

Jan Swasthya Abhiyan (JSA) is a network of 22 different organizations which includes other networks, organizations working only on health issues, those working on women’s rights and issues as well as academic bodies such as the Centre for Social Medicine and Community Health (CSMCH), Jawaharlal Nehru University. 

JSA provides a platform to organizations that work on many different issues to come together on issues of health and health care. JSA has state units and each state unit has its own activities.  The National Secretariat rotates across the state units. Currently the National Secretariat is being hosted by JSA Delhi.

JSA organized a meeting on 12th of July to discuss revival strategies for JSA, Delhi and also to create a support group for the secretariat of the JSA at the National level.  NAMHHR members including Dr. Mira Shiva and YK Sandhya attended the meeting who raised the issue of maternal health and maternity benefits.
