About Ansh

Ansh, a Charity Entrepreneurship incubated charity, is dedicated to saving newborn lives by building healthcare capacity in government district hospitals in India. Our mission is to create a scalable and cost-effective model that implements Kangaroo care and other impact focused newborn care practices such as breastfeeding counselling, monitoring of danger signs, IPC (Infection Prevention and Control) measures, counselling in best newborn care practices and closely working with the hospital on making these services long-term and sustainable.
 

Our main intervention is Kangaroo Mother Care, a highly cost-effective and scientifically proven intervention for saving newborn lives. Kangaroo Care has three components:

  1. Skin-to-Skin Contact: Skin-to-skin contact with the mother regulates the infant’s body temperature, reducing hypothermia

  2. Close Monitoring: Monitoring mothers and newborns for danger signs

  3. Exclusive Breastfeeding: Exclusive breastfeeding provides benefits to the infant's immune system and help in weight gain
     

Currently, we have 24 on-ground full-time staff delivering our programs in two hospitals—Pali District Hospital and Baran District Hospital of Rajasthan—with the aim to replicate and adapt this model for broader implementation in public health systems.
 

We run two KMC programs in both of our hospitals:

  1. KMC in Post Natal Care (PNC) Ward Program for Stable Low Birth Weight and Preterm Newborns

  2. Early Initiation of KMC in Special Newborn Care Unit (SNCU) Program for Unstable Low Birth Weight and Preterm Newborns
     

Main model components are:

  • Repurpose some space in the health facilities and create dedicated space for Kangaroo Care

  • Recruit health workers to act as dedicated Kangaroo Care counsellors for mothers

  • Provide training to clinicians and nurses on supporting and managing kangaroo care and other components of the program

  • Follow up with mothers after discharge to ensure continued behavioural change and monitor the newborn for any danger signs
