Partnering for Health Care

As a major breakthrough in enhancing maternal and child health in the tea gardens, APPLF has partnered with Solidarity & Action Against HIV Infection in India (SAATHI) to implement the project, Sambhuya funded by US Agency of International Development (USAID). The project will focus at maternal and neonatal healthcare development along with family planning promotion. The focal point of the project will be developing Chubwa Referral Hospital of APPL at Chubwa as a Centre of Excellence. A very first initiative of its kind in the tea garden, the project aims to develop a model to be propagated to other tea gardens in future.
