AIDS, STD Health Action Project in Mumbai, India - An evaluation of ASHA
Anjali Gopalan , S Sundararaman
The MMC ASHA project supported by Sida is primarily set out to promote safer sex, provide condoms and health care services to offer treatment for STDs among women in prostitution and male clients in Kamathipura and Kethwadi areas of Mumbai. The project underwent a redesign in 1995 and therefore was more focused in its approach by deploying community development officers (CDO) and animators (peers) to work closely with the community. The project cycle ended as of June of 1999 and Sida called for an evaluation of the project achievements.
