Undergraduate: MBBS students in their 4th-5th semester are posted in the urban health program for five weeks and conduct epidemiological exercise, health talks and family studies. During these two semesters, they also participate in the Family Health Advisory Services (FHAS) in which they follow up their allotted families over a period of nine months and implement interventions to improve the health of the family. From January 2017, FHAS was remodeled to focus on chronic diseases and children only. In the 7th Semester, they are posted for six weeks at Ballabgarh. This is a residential posting that includes training in epidemiology, orientation to community health, community aspects of child health and mental health, orientation to district level health systems, and national health programs including special emphasis on IMNCI.

Interns: The interns are posted for a total duration of three months at the CRHSP Ballabgarh. This period is  divided into 6 weeks at sub district hospital (SDH), and 3 weeks each at the Primary Health Centres (PHCs) located at Dayalpur and Chhainsa. The posting at PHC is also residential. At SDH, interns are posted in OPD and Wards that help them in learning basic clinical skills, as well as in-patient management, including conducting normal deliveries. They are rotated in all the available clinical disciplines at SDH under the supervision of respective Senior Resident (SR). During PHC posting, interns participate in health care delivery at the clinics of PHC, sub-centres as well as in antenatal clinics.

Other activities during the financial year 2016-17:

  1. Intravenous Iron sucrose administration during pregnancy: The IFPA has high prevalence of anaemia among pregnant women. Intra venous Iron sucrose administration to pregnant women was initiated to combat the problem. Women during ante natal period are tracked from the regular ante natal clinics in all the villages. They are referred to primary health centres for intra venous iron sucrose. Iron sucrose is given as per doses recommended by the National Health Mission Guidelines. Telephonic tracking of patients are done from PHCs through health workers, ASHAs and patients themselves to improve the coverage, utilization and follow up. A total of 2,204 doses were administered to 600 pregnant women during the reporting period.
  2. High risk pregnancy tracking: Ante natal clinics are conducted in each and every village of IFPA. We have started a close tracking system for all high risk pregnancies identified during these clinics in year 2016-17. Details of high risk pregnancy are entered in a software developed by CRHSP based on which a work-plan is generated for further follow up of pregnant woman. Health workers, during their scheduled house to house visits, use this work plan to track the action taken by the pregnant women. This ensures full compliance by the high risk pregnancy in seeking appropriate care. A total of 525 high risk pregnancies were identified and tracked during this year.
  3. Availability of Post Partum IUCD (PPIUCD): As per the guidelines of National Health Mission, facility for PPIUCD is available at both the Primary Health Centres from May 2014. Pregnant women are counselled during antenatal and intra-natal period for PPIUCD insertion. PPIUCD insertion is done after taking written informed consent. Follow up is done after 6 weeks of pregnancy either during clinic visit or telephonically.  A total  of 77PPIUCD were inserted during this year
