Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

I am driven by passion to improve women’s access to comprehensive contraceptive services in India. I have initiated my contribution in this field since 2005 during my education days (at rural/ urban slum areas) with various community mobilizing activities. I have organized onsite training at all levels of public health facilities to train doctors, gynecologists, nurses and health intermediaries. And over the years, the number of providers offering family planning services have doubled in the project/program area. I am continuously supporting/ monitoring all the sites to strengthen provider’s clinical skills by conducting regular post training visits to ensure high quality services to women.

What sparked your passion for family planning?

While offering clinical services, I realized the abject lack of awareness among men and women about contraception. I also felt a need for clinical training and attitude clarification among providers and shifted from clinical practice to public health.

Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:

I have planned and executed various community mobilizing activities with groups of student/learners/ health providers & intermediaries.

IDF is implementing an innovative model for training which requires a team of trainers to travel to facilities and train the cohort of trainable providers including doctors, nurses and ANMs. This gives me an opportunity to identify the on-ground challenges faced by the providers and liaise with the district officials to try and find solutions.

If you are named a winner of 120 under 40, how will you use this new platform and the $1000 grant to advance your work? :

Its a new platform/ network for me to share my experiences and to learn new concepts from other leaders. So that i can more efficiently increase the scale of family planning services via on-site training models and to educate the providers and health intermediaries about the latest family services and technologies.
