Consortium of Health Association of India (c-HAI) is a non-profit organisation established in the year 2019. c-HAI focuses on prompting health in the southern states of India - Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana and Kerala.
Our objective is to achieve all 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) through partnership with same vision and mission CSOs who are working for unreached communities in the 5 southern states.
An integrated approach to build a equitable and empowered society
Achieve basic health of people in 5 southern states covering 5 million tribal communities by 2025 for health development and protection under SDG 3 - good health and well-being
Reaching out the unreached population to achieve "Health for All" through NGOs capacity development and effective program management.
In basic terms, health awareness is the knowledge regarding one’s health. It can be described as the awareness of various health problems, symptoms and treatment options. "Health for All" is the main motto of c-HAI. We create awareness about health through various initiatives such as:
- Awareness on tobacco consumption
- Menstrual health management for the tribal communities
- Promoting lifestyle change and disease management
We commit to building programmes that increase confidence, knowledge, and skills – and improve access to materials and facilities – for adolescent girls, women, transgender and non-binary individuals to manage their menstruation safely and with dignity.
