Connecting local responses around the world
Since the beginning of 2017, facilitators from the Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research (C-NES) and the Voluntary Health Association of Assam (VHAA) support the SALT/CLCP approach in 120 villages in 3 districts of Assam: Kamrup Rural, Bongaigaon, and Udalguri. The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) will be evaluating the intervention using a randomized controlled trial from March 2018 to January 2019.
Despite challenges, facilitators are doing tremendous work: “Everything is going well and community engagement is increasing day by day in the SALT process. Yes, we also have challenges, but we are always hopeful”, says Monjur Hussain of the Bongaigaon district team.
