EHA Tezpur receiving chief minister award for best social action 2009

In recognition of the EHA's work in Udalguri, the government has conferred the Chief ministers award for best social action for 2009 to Baptist Christian Hospital. The district commissioner nominated the community health program based on an independent evaluation of the work. EHA has been a longstanding CBM parnter.

CBM's partner intervention in North East

Baptist Christian Hospital is a 130 bedded secondary hospital that exists to provide the highest possible quality of health care to the sonitpur, Nagaon, Darrang, Udalguri and Lakhimpur districts of Assam and the neighbouring state of Arunachal Pradesh.

In 2006 there was a huge epidemic of malaria in which  almost 40% of all hospital deaths were due to malaria. In response to this needless loss of life due to a preventable and treatable disease a “Children focussed malaria control program’ was started in 2007 in Udalguri district of Assam, which was one of the worst affected by the scourge of malaria.

Assam Government recognises CBM partner's intervention

In 2009 a communitybased rehabilitation was started for children with disabilities in Udalguri. The strategy of the program was to see “children save other childrens lives”. 20 high schools, 27 primary schools and more than 50 villages were given awareness, preventive measures, prompt diagnosis and treatment through volunteers.

In recognition of the work in Udalguri, the government has conferred the Chief ministers award for best social action for 2009 to Baptist Christian Hospital. The district commissioner nominated the community health program based on an independent evaluation of the work.
