lndia’s second Covid-19 wave has engulfed even the remote rural and tribal areas, which had bucked the pandemic in 2020. With a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases all over Maharashtra and in Nashik, we at MPSM decided to conduct a preliminary survey in the tribal areas of Nashik district with the help of our local community resource persons (CRPs) and education class tutors. The survey revealed a rampant increase in the caseload in the surveyed tribal areas. Because of the fear of the pandemic and its consequences such as quarantine, hospitalisation or admission into Covid Care Centres, tribals have not been revealing symptoms nor are they reaping the benefits of a decent preventive and curative care. This has further worsened the situation.

Keeping in mind this gap in understanding and the need to control the rapid spread of Covid-19 MPSM has planned the capacity expansion, coordination and collaboration with the existing Government Healthcare System to meet the dire need of our tribals to fight the pandemic, starting with IEC (Information, Education and Communication). Stepping up timely intervention is key to prevention of the spread and curbing mortality through awareness and providing essential preventive and curative measures at the grassroots level.
