ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE AND COMMUNITY-BASED HEALTH CARE

PIDT is an advocacy group and action tank, leveraging wider appreciation of the opinions and efforts of the marginalized and facilitating their greater integration in development processes and decision-making at all levels. PIDT builds networks to spread the spirit of volunteering for social change across different sections of society. Having emerged as a strong catalyst in the development of sustainable, value added services for the oppressed so that they may actualise their potential, PIDT is moving toward institutional capacity-building within the development sector to share its critical understanding of participatory and transformative methods so that the needs of the underprivileged may be met on a wider scale and with greater alacrity.

PIDT is currently well positioned to:

• Continue to build capacity in the areas we are working.
• Scale up successful operations such as Sanhati Bipani collective marketing, Anandalaya school, and research and development in herbal medicines.
• Work to integrate with existing structures and systems such as the panchayati raj system and other government initiatives.
• Develop a resource library and training program to share lessons with other local and National development organizations.
• Enhance our global networks to exchange information and insights and to increase opportunities for volunteering across the broader development community.
