Delivering the Woman and ManPower for National Health Programs and Partnerships with National NGOs
Every national health program relies on local Nonprofit Organizations and local Community Health Workers to supply the needed woman and manpower to organize and implement national health initiatives at the grassroots level.
Local Community Health Workers build partnerships with national health-related NGOs for organizing local volunteers for National Public Health Programs in rural areas in the fields of maternal and child health, polio, TB, HIV/AIDS, family planning, nutrition and immunization.

There are many other projects being conducted in local CHW organized NGOs focused on a wide range of rural health issues utilizing locally trained health workers to create local solutions.
How You Can Support This Work
To implement improvements in a successful model a self-sufficient, self-sustaining program sometimes needs investments that cannot be covered by income from the local economy. For such advancements, IFFH relies on charitable donations that make it possible for our team to develop new projects utilizing our existing resources and infrastructure.
We want to improve our existing healthcare education programs and need to invest
in the development of the next phase of our community health projects. Once investments are made in the development of programs, our goal is always to continue operations on a self-sufficient and self-sustaining basis.
We see opportunities for improving our programs and have the human
resources and experience to confront old problems with new methods.
Our years of work has produced a strong and reliable network of trained community health workers at the rural village level. Our success has encouraged us to activate our large network of village based health workers to address the underlying challenges to further improvements in women’s health, children’s health and community health.
