Paramedics: Bringing hope and driving change

Paramedics: Bringing hope and driving change

Understanding the need of women who were very reluctant to be treated by male doctors and paramedics, Munira Manzoor, decided the need to build a team of local women paramedics. She underwent training in basic healthcare, natal care and in trauma counseling. She also learned how to talk to women about basic healthcare, nutrition and pregnancy care. After recruiting volunteers from the village, this team of paramedics have emerged as icons for the local people. Today there are more than 50 women health volunteers in Budgam, Pulwama, Baramullah and Srinagar.
