Social Outreach

Health counseling for mother and child post birth and in the growing years is essential. In rural India, social health workers are effective mediums for continuing care and support for breastfeeding mothers as well as growing toddlers. The Indian government and various international NGOs offer training programs for outreach workers. Vidhi Beri works with these women who are catalysts for change every day in thousands of lives.

Her rural outreach training and policy advisory work includes areas of breastfeeding support, infant feeding, and malnutrition. She has been working with Anganwadi workers in areas of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
