Pulse Polio Awareness :
Pulse Polio is an immunization campaign established by the government of India to eliminate poliomyelitis (polio) in India by vaccinating all children under the age of five years against the polio virus. The project fights poliomyelitis through a large-scale pulse vaccination programme and monitoring for polio cases. In India, vaccination against polio started in 1978 with Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI). By 1984, it covered around 40% of infants, giving three doses of OPV to each.
In 1985, the Universal Immunization Program (UIP) was launched to cover all the districts of the country. UIP became a part of child survival and safe motherhood program (CSSM) in 1992 and Reproductive and Child Health Program (RCH) in 1997. This program led to a significant increase in coverage, up to 95%. The number of reported cases of polio also declined from 28,757 during 1987 to 3,265 in 1995.
In 1995, following the Global Polio Eradication Initiative of the World Health Organization (1988), India launched Pulse Polio immunization program with Universal Immunization Program which aimed at 100% coverage. Elimination of polio in India.
The last reported cases of wild polio in India were in West Bengal and Gujarat on 13 January 2011.On 27 March 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared India a polio free country, since no cases of wild polio had been reported in for three years. Though India is announced as an Polio Free Country but it is our responsibility to keep this record & continuing the awareness camp to alert the guardians regarding the disadvantages of Polio disease. Sometimes it comes to know that few people are not interested to come to the pulse polio camps as they belong to some superstitions that it can affect their children health. So it is our duty to go to every family and make understand the parents of the children how they can prevent their child with just "2 Drops" as it is said " Do Bund Zindagi Ki".
Preventing Pulse Polio
The Pulse Polio Initiative (PPI) aims at covering every individual in the country. It aspires to reach even children in remote communities through an improved social mobilisation plan.
Not a single child should miss the immunisation, leaving no chance of polio occurrence.
Cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) to be reported in time and stool specimens of them to be collected within 14 days. Outbreak response immunisation (ORI) to be conducted as early as possible.
Maintaining a high level of surveillance.
Performance of good mop-up operations where polio has disappeared.
Steps involved
  • Setting up of booths in all parts of the country.
  • Initialising walk-in cold rooms, freezer rooms, deep freezers, ice-lined refrigerators and cold boxes for a steady supply of vaccine to booths.
  • Arranging employees, volunteers, and vaccines.
  • Ensuring vaccine vial monitor on each vaccine vial.
  • Immunising children with OPV on national immunisation days.
  • Identifying missing children from immunisation process.
  • Surveillance of efficacy.
  • Publicity was extensive and included replacing the national telecoms' authority ringtone with a vaccination day awareness message, posters, TV and cinema spots, parades, rallies, and one-to-one communication from volunteers. Vaccination booths were set up, with a house-to-house campaign for remote communities.

Awareness on Sanitization :
Worldwide, an estimated 2.6 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation. Proper sanitation and hygiene education can prevent the spread of disease? saving lives and protecting communities.
Since sanitation and hygiene practices are linked to preserving and promoting safe water, our approach addresses these issues holistically for a greater, more sustainable impact. We support communities in constructing hand-washing stations and latrines.
Our efforts are combined with community workshops on health and hygiene.  Through these workshops, people learn healthy practices that help to reduce the spread of malaria as well as diarrhea and other waterborne illnesses in communities.  In addition, proper waste management and garbage collection help to protect land and water. All solutions are locally-driven, to ensure that the program fits in the context of each community.
Your contributions help communities protect themselves and prevent the spread of disease by: 
  • Supporting the construction and improvement of sanitary toilets and composting latrines to help reduce contamination.
  • Enabling the installation of hand-washing stations next to latrines in homes and schools.
  • Providing education on proper hand-washing and other hygiene practices.
  • Empowering local community health workers to train residents in safe garbage and waste disposal.
  • Ensuring the safety and security of land and water sources through integrated sanitation, hygiene and water programs.

Awareness on Women & Child Trafficking :
Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others.This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim's rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another.
Human trafficking is thought to be one of the fastest-growing activities of trans-national criminal organizations.
The key aims of the anti-human trafficking portal are :
  • Aid in the tracking of cases with inter-state ramifications.
  • Provide comprehensive information on legislation, statistics, court judgments, United Nations Conventions, details of trafficked people and traffickers and rescue success stories.
  • Provide connection to "Track child", the National Portal on Missing Children that is operational in many states.
Also on 20 February, the Indian government announced the implementation of a Comprehensive Scheme that involves the establishment of Integrated Anti Human Trafficking Units (AHTUs) in 335 vulnerable police districts throughout India, as well as capacity building that includes training for police, prosecutors and judiciary. As of the announcement, 225 Integrated AHTUs had been made operational, while 100 more AHTUs were proposed for the forthcoming financial year.
Trafficking of children :
Trafficking of children involves the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of children for the purpose of exploit a commercial sexual exploitation of children can take many forms, including forcing a child into prostitution or other forms of sexual activity or child pornography. Child exploitation may also involve forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude, the removal of organs, illicit international adoption, trafficking for early marriage, recruitment as child soldiers, for use in begging or as athletes (such as child camel jockeys) or football players. Traffickers in children may take advantage of the parents' extreme poverty. Parents may sell children to traffickers in order to pay off debts or gain income, or they may be deceived concerning the prospects of training and a better life for their children. They may sell their children into labor, sex trafficking, or illegal adoptions.
The adoption process, legal and illegal, when abused can sometimes result in cases of trafficking of babies and pregnant women from developing countries to the West.
Sex trafficking :
Warning of Prostitution and Human trafficking in South Korea for G.I. by United States Forces Korea. Sex trafficking affects 4.5 million people worldwide. Most victims find themselves in coercive or abusive situations from which escape is both difficult and dangerous.
Trafficking for sexual exploitation was formerly thought of as the organized movement of people, usually women, between countries and within countries for sex work with the use of physical coercion, deception and bondage through forced debt. However, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (US), does not require movement for the offence. The issue becomes contentious when the element of coercion is removed from the definition to incorporate facilitation of consensual involvement in prostitution. Sexual trafficking includes coercing a migrant into a sexual act as a condition of allowing or arranging the migration. Sexual trafficking uses physical or sexual coercion, deception, abuse of power and bondage incurred through forced debt. Trafficked women and children, for instance, are often promised work in the domestic or service industry, but instead are sometimes taken to brothels where they are required to undertake sex work, while their passports and other identification papers confiscated. They may be beaten or locked up and promised their freedom only after earning – through prostitution – their purchase price, as well as their travel and visa costs.
Forced marriage :
A forced marriage qualifies as a form of human trafficking in certain situations. If a woman is sent abroad, forced into the marriage and then repeatedly compelled to engage in sexual conduct with her new husband, then her experience is that of sex trafficking. If the bride is treated as a domestic servant by her new husband and/or his family, then this is a form of labor trafficking.
Labor trafficking :
Labor trafficking is the movement of persons for the purpose of forced labor and services. It may involve bonded labor, involuntary servitude, domestic servitude, and child labor. Labor trafficking happens most often within the domain of domestic work, agriculture, construction, manufacturing and entertainment; and migrant workers and indigenous people are especially at risk of becoming victims. People smuggling operations are also known to traffic people for the exploitation of their labor, for example, as transporters.
Trafficking for organ trade :
Trafficking in organs is a form of human trafficking. It can take different forms. In some cases, the victim is compelled into giving up an organ. In other cases, the victim agrees to sell an organ in exchange of money/goods, but is not paid (or paid less). Finally, the victim may have the organ removed without the victim's knowledge (usually when the victim is treated for another medical problem/illness – real or orchestrated problem/illness). Migrant workers, homeless persons, and illiterate persons are particularly vulnerable to this form of exploitation.
Trafficking for organ trade often seeks kidneys. Trafficking in organs is a lucrative trade because in many countries the waiting lists for patients who need transplants are very long.
The Trafficking Network is especially active on village areas where the peoples' lifestyle is below average, families are not well educated, have more children in one family, runs through a lack of money but huge liabilities. The agents are in search of this type of families, who can be easiest target for women & child trafficking. So we are in a mission to aware families against this trafficking activity with a joint collaboration of State Govt. & Central Govt.
