This is a new programme, involving the integration of health related activities in the learning centres of pre-school children in rural areas. The health facilities’ health care workers work with the pre-school centres close to the health facilities, beside their routine job, and the focus is on the healthy behaviour of children as well as their mothers. According to records, children are being growth screened, receiving worm tablets, Vitamin A capsules, OPD and some other services. Health education is provided to the mothers about their children’s growth, nutrition, hygiene and stimulation. This was explained what changes have been brought by this programme in health as well as awareness of the community, especially mothers who are the main care givers of children as well as children themselves. What health related changes have been brought in the centres? Examples include hand washing after playing in the yard and using soap for keeping healthy.
