The NGO has been working at the community level to develop solutions and help implement quality healthcare services. We work with community groups, collaborate with Government departments and civil society groups to help in the improvement of health and nutrition systems particularly for the poor women and children.

The various areas of healthcare system delivery addressed by Prayatna include improving the quality of services for sanitation, cleanliness, vaccination, maternal and reproductive health, child health and nutrition. Apart from that, we also run free medical camps in rural and semi-urban areas where they not only provide free treatments to the poor people but also educate them to quickly identify causes & symptoms of various communicable and non communicable diseases.
