Mothers are the connect between community and social progress. Factors contributing to health risks include poor nutrition, inadequate health and family planning services, high incidence of under-nutrition and mortality rates, along with poor utilization of public health services. Maternal and Infant health is the core of Setco Foundation’s intervention in the community. The most effective way to combat malnutrition amongst children is to combat the initiation of it from the womb of mother.

We adopt an inclusive approach of development where we provide support to expectant and nursing mothers for ante-natal and post-natal care for periodic home based counseling, supplementary nutrition, full immunization, linkages with government health services, ensuring good institutional deliveries, good pre and post natal care practices and referral services for risk monitoring. The expectant and nursing mothers are being counseled and trained by Setco Community Health Workers. Our health workers form the backbone of our community work.
