  • Union Health Secretary C K Mishra launched the ‘Saathiya’ resource kit, including ‘Saathiya Salah’ mobile application, for adolescents as part of the Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram (RKSK). He said that one of the best ways to reach out to the adolescents was to reach out to the community and therefore a system was designed which was called peer educators.

    Diega Polacios, Country Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), said the resource kit has been designed to present the peer educators with key information on adolescent health, which would then enable them to communicate the same and help the adolescents at the grassroots or village level.
