Since its inception 38 years ago, the Institute of Health Management, Pachod (IHMP) has been implementing innovative public health programmes with a strong focus on addressing the most pressing health concerns of marginalized and disadvantaged communities in the country. The Institute’s primary focus during the last 15 years has been on safeguarding and empowering vulnerable adolescent girls living in rural and urban slum communities. Its services have resulted in a significant impact such as measurable empowerment of adolescent girls, delay at the age of marriage and first pregnancy, reduction in maternal and child mortality and in the prevalence of low birth weight babies.
