Key programmes by Aastrika Sphere

Respectful Maternity Care (RMC) Training

We believe that RMC is a basic human right for every woman. Aastrika Foundation is working towards strengthening the health system to provide more compassionate and women-centric care through implementation of training programmes on RMC for various stakeholders within the health system - nurses, security staff, helpers, administration, pharmacy staff etc. These programmes are implemented using a variety of andragogical approaches, based on the stakeholder group, like digital courses, online and in-person classes, role plays, and simulations. We have trained staff at a large public hospital, small trust based hospitals as well as medical colleges on RMC.
