The Population Foundation of India (PFI) approached us to design IEC materials in the form of posters and information boards on Rogi Kalyan Samiti (RKS) with the objective to inform the public about RKS, patient rights and grievance redressal mechanisms. The project was a part of a pilot model being developed by PFI for a state government.
* PFI is a national non-profit organisation that works on advocating gender sensitive population, health and development policies. They work with the central and state governments as well as research institutes, civil society, media and the community through cutting-edge advocacy tools.
* Rogi Kalyan Samiti (RKS) / Patient Welfare Committees were constituted under the National Rural Health Mission at Primary Health Centres (PHCs) and above to facilitate public participation in improving the functioning and quality of care aspects. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Government of India developed and disseminated the guidelines for RKS to the states in 2015.
