About PCI:

PCI initiated operations in India in 1997 and maintains a diverse portfolio of health, nutrition, education and development programming in both urban and rural regions, focusing on the most marginalized and hard-to-reach populations with an emphasis on women of reproductive age. The PCI-India country strategic plan envisages consolidating the ongoing programs and growing into new thematic areas such as education on adolescent health, gender, WASH, urban health and neglected tropical diseases.


About the Project:

Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) is a neglected tropical disease and there is a proven strategy for elimination of this disease through the administration of effective drug combinations at population level for several years.

The proposed project mainly lays focus on demand generation through social mobilization efforts leveraging several existing platforms like State Rural Livelihoods Missions (SRLMs), Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), Front-Line Workers (FLWs), schools, Civil Society Organization (CSO) networks, etc. The project will focus on increasing demand for drugs and improving compliance at population level through social mobilization.
