Women's Health
SEARCH presented evidence for the first time that rural women needed gynecological care in addition to the maternal care and family planning. (The Lancet 1989)
SEARCH developed the concept of "Comprehensive Reproductive Health Care to Women" (  International Journal of Gynecol. Obstet. 1989 ,    The Lancet 1989 )
SEARCH trained the TBAs and village health workers to provide reproductive health care, education to women and referral care for abortion, STDs, and family planning.
The studies and advocacy helped initiate the shift in the global population policy in 1994 towards women's reproductive health. .
SEARCH is actively engaged in running women's health programme (more.....)
