Thanks to ASHA, the Mayapuri babies are in good health

Each baby is regularly weighed to keep their growth chart up to date

After vaccinations, babies are sent home with a dose of anti-pyretic and a multivitamin tonic

Babies often have dark eyeliner, created with khola

Nobody likes having an injection

ASHA staff give health education classes to local women

Flash cards are used to give clear messages to the mothers
