I am currently working as Program Manager with Hindustan Latex Family Planning Promotion Trust, NOIDA. My key experiences in health programming include the opportunity to work in the NACO funded Female Condom – 9 States programme, which I had the opportunity to lead in North India. I’ve also been part of the Kanpur Voucher Project, (a USAID funded project) in the capacity of Project Coordinator. Some of the other assignments have been with the UHI (urban Health Initiative) Project, as a research assistant. The basic roles across these engagements involved, program management, capacity building, networking, conducting evaluation and monitoring visits to the project areas.
I've extensive experience of formulating Communication and program plans, providing strategic guidance and content development for National as well as State level communication campaigns, providing technical inputs on BCC to partner NGOs, budgeting as well as monitoring and evaluation . My experience of gender, RCH, family planning and HIV/AIDS, across different contexts and capacities enables me to bring a rich perspective to my role as a Communication person. I have had the opportunity to work with diverse stakeholders like the community, NGO partners, consultants, Government officials etc. I believe all these experiences together with my passion and skills can be instrumental in bringing sustainable change in the lives of the community.
