Plan India in partnership with AstraZeneca celebrated the success of the Young Health Programme (YHP) Phase I and II (2010-2015) and launched Phase III (2016-2020) in five more resettlement communities in New Delhi


Plan India, a member of Plan International Federation, is a nationally registered independent child development and humanitarian organization committed to enabling vulnerable and marginalized children, their families and communities to be free of poverty, violence and injustice.

The third phase of the YHP aims to reach out to an additional 130,000 young boys and girls.

This phase was started this May through a door-to-door campaign where 1,000 peer educators and youth volunteers sensitized community members on the dangers of heat waves and precautions to take.

The campaign was rolled out in the resettlement colonies of New Delhi covering Sultanpuri, Kirari Suleman Nagar, Jahangirpuri, Bawana and Holambi Khurd, reaching out to more than 20,000 households and more than one lakh individuals.
