A Super Cyclone & Pandemic: IPPF response in India

For the cyclone Amphan emergency response, Family Planning Association of India provided SRH services to communities affected in urban slums of Kolkata including the slum pockets such as Madartala, Jhilmil Basti, Brace bridge and Santoshpur, which are slum pockets of Maheshtala Municipality. The program implementation team received approval from local municipal body to organize health camps in the area and organised with local community clubs to use their space. Beneficiaries were provided medicines, contraceptives supply and kits. Along with SRH services, screening for fever was done using IR thermometers and social distancing was maintained through managing beneficiary flow with the support from Link workers.
