Swasti works across India and 22 other countries with urban and rural poor communities, helping them live healthier and happier lives.
Work and Achievements
Swasti Health Catalyst is a niche service provider in the public health sector, delivering end-to-end solutions as well as short and long term support and facilitation, combining research and practice. Established in 2004, Swasti Health Catalyst aims to empower people and communities to lead healthy lives.In 2016-’17, we enriched the lives of 1,91,336 people.
We are strongly driven by the belief that our work should challenge established norms, and break barriers - particularly, the inextricable link between ill health and poverty - to innovate to create change. Our initiatives address behaviours, systems and social determinants together to ensure the wellbeing of most hard to reach populations. Communities are at the centre of our work. We work with rural and urban poor including farming communities, women in sex work, marginalised gay men and transgender people and factory workers.
We recognise that the challenges to wellbeing are not only limited to health, and hence our programmes address the key enablers to health in an integrated way. Our flagship programme, Invest for Wellness (i4We), proposed for this partnership, is based on our 15 years of experience in preventing diseases and conditions, and reaching communities to effective treatment when required. We learn from examples of what works and not works in India and globally and understand the missing pieces in health such as leveraging technology to scale up reach and processes. The thematic areas that Swasti works in are Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Life Skills for All, Safety Security and Justice (SSJ), Social Protection, and Health Systems Strengthening.
Fund Utilisation Statement
Swasti will utilize the funds for the work of communities and support families that are the most marginalized. The fund will help them get tested and treated for key conditions, and access clear sanitation, water and food.
