We’re building an equipped health workforce and resilient health systems in the face of a global pandemic.

As the world responds to the COVID-19, we too have had all hands on deck, working along with the national and more than 15 state governments, to fight this pandemic. By the time the biggest global lockdown started in India, our COVID-19 response strategy was in action. We had three clear objectives: strengthen the knowledge and expertise of frontline health workers to deal with the pandemic and protect their communities; support national and state governments in their requests for COVID-19 response; and, ensure continuation of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, as well as other essential services.

What has inspired us throughout these past weeks, are the innumerable brave hearts we have met, each contributing with all their might to the fight against the virus. Their dedication, grit and passion to serve their communities compels us to share their stories with you.
