About ansh

We aim to save newborn lives by building healthcare capacity in India for high quality delivery of care for newborns. We aim to create a scalable and cost-effective model that implements Kangaroo care over the long term. Currently we are setting up a pilot program for our model in two districts of Rajasthan. Our goal is to replicate this model beyond our pilot districts, eventually making it adaptable for public health systems.

  • Set up referral systems for low birth weight newborns

  • Provide onboarding and ongoing training to nurses and assistants
  • Provide counseling and monitoring through phone calls, ensuring kangaroo care and BF adherence and identify newborn in stress.
