Gram Varta for Community Mobilisation and Behaviour Change

Gram Varta is a Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) approach initiated under Sector-Wide Approach to Strengthen Health (SWASTH) in Bihar. It mobilises women through Self Help Groups (SHGs) to improve family health, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (HN&WASH) practices and contain high neo-natal, maternal and under-5 mortality rate in the state. The PLA model supported SHG members in identifying the local HN&WASH problems and developing strategies for action.

The approach not only nurtured women’s self-confidence and developed group solidarity, it helped them negotiate healthy practices with family members, share information with their family and peer networks on health and hygiene, and foster community support for action. At a macro level, it mobilised the community to promote healthy habits, raised the demand for primary HN&WASH services, increased women’s active participation, and stimulated local action for change.
