Welcome to

Uttarakhand Cluster

THE STORY

The mountains that dominate Uttarakhand can also isolate the region's rural, poor population. 

The Cluster began in 2008 as a way to connect local healthcare organisations so they could share their skills and resources, and increase their impact. Now, over fifty groups meet for training, support and to run projects. Together, they've helped make big steps towards healthier communities in this region of northern India.

WHAT THEY'RE DOING

Pioneering Inclusion

 

The Cluster has launched some of the region’s first disability inclusion programmes

Disaster Relief

 

After 2013's devastating landslides and floods, the Cluster provided aid to 6000 families in 600 villages.

MEET A MEMBER

If we had not started the Cluster, people would be keeping a lot of important knowledge and skills to themselves.

She's worked in community health since the 1980s, and currently helps run a school and mental health project in the state capital Dehradun.
