Thank you for signing up to receive a copy of The Bhopal Medical Appeal’s Covid-19 community mobilisation guide: Protocols for Community-Led Finding, Tracing, Protecting.
Our clinics have been steering community health programs in Bhopal for almost a quarter century. Over this time they have led several initiatives to empower individuals and communities to participate in protecting and improving their own health. The Sambhavna Clinic’s teams of 7 Community Health Workers and 10 Community Research Workers have inspired over 100 Community Health Volunteers to regularly undertake public health work in their own homes and neighbourhoods, helping to significantly reduce the spread of diseases such as Malaria, TB and now Covid-19.
This decentralized form of public health intervention is becoming widely recognised as essential for safely easing lockdown measures while supressing secondary waves of infection.
Until now all our work has been funded by the extraordinary efforts of ordinary people around the world. It is our Clinics’ long-held dream to be able, in return, to give something back. It is no exaggeration to say that we have never been in more need of this hard-won, practical wisdom.
Your support will help us to continue our work in Bhopal and highlight the importance of community mobilisation in towns, cities and countries around the world in the fight against Covid-19.
