Jatan has provided opportunities to young people in the community to design and implement programs based on their health and development needs.
Jatan believes that youth development must be addressed in a holistic manner. For this reason, Jatan implements programs that address problems of health (including HIV/AIDS), education, local governance, migration, employment, and reproductive rights, all of which are important concerns for the target group. It works to develop leaders in the youth community. Jatan also works with panchayats and political leaders, health service providers, the media, and community members to create awareness on the health rights of women. Jatan has formed special groups of pregnant women for better provisioning of ante- and post-natal care. Migrant support is a core area of Jatan’s work as well. Jatan operates a resource center to assist with migrant registration and provides a variety of support services.
