PUBLIC HEALTH & RESEARCH STRATEGIES
We want to build a strong base of our awareness programs, and for that we need to collect as much data we can. The data collection process includes real time data on current pollution levels, the process of waste disposal in different areas, knowing about the practises any area is undertaking to curb pollution, etc. Moreover, we also run health camps where we carry out necessary check up with the traffic police and other public employees in order to assess the impact & effects of pollution on outdoor workers & other citizens.
Key activities: Data mining, assessing impact on public health and environment, medical & health programmes, research with pilot interventions.
