Collecting responses for the Maternal Health survey in Kochi has now begun. A team of nurses have been visiting the homes of women in the Udaya colony and are finding it very interesting hearing the stories of women's health and birth in the past and present. It is hoped that the data collected by the survey will be valuable and give some further insight into the health and education needs of the women. The visits are also providing the opportunity to explain and gain more interest in attending the education classes.
The surveys should be completed by mid May after which the first health class will begin.
