How Mother’s Groups are helping to spread health messages & build community

Bimala is the Chair of the Health Mothers’ Group in Khaptadchanna, Bajhang in West Nepal. In the past, there were rarely any meetings organised in her ward to talk about women’s health issues.
Now, every month, female community health volunteers hold Health Mothers’ Group meetings. Bimala shares that these gatherings serve two purposes. First, women not only get important health messages, but they also have a chance to share experiences, address concerns, and build a sense of community. Health Mothers’ Group members have played a crucial role in helping new members and creating an environment where joy and past experiences are openly shared.


She extends gratitude to Action for Nepal for providing refresher training to the volunteers, highlighting that the training has been vital in enhancing their capabilities.
