In 2005 they started a health care program in the villages to improve the health of all villagers.  

The  livelihoods and community health programmes specifically target women, offering them a range of family planning options and increasing their economic autonomy. These initiatives help to build women’s agency, providing a firm foundation to support progress towards gender equality.  This has spread to other regions.
