MOTHERS below age 15 are five times more likely to die during pregnancy and childbirth and have an increased risk of miscarriage and complications. IHMP’s project strives to protect young girls from the adverse consequences of early motherhood by providing access to sexual and reproductive health services, information and counselling, and community-based monitoring to ensure their health needs are addressed. ₹4,500 will provide a married adolescent girl healthcare for a year.
EVERY day over 15,000 Indian girls, at an average age of 15, get married. IHMP provide unmarried adolescent girls with life skills education on topics such as the female body, sexual and reproductive health, nutrition and hygiene. These courses seek to increase their self-confidence and assertiveness and help them develop their ability to negotiate a delay in marriage in order to continue and complete their education. ₹540 will provide a set of reusable eco-pads for one girl for a year.

Based on its pioneering work in primary health care and health for the urban poor in Maharashtra, IHMP conducts a stimulating, challenging, yet practical training for young and mid-career professionals...
