Objectives:

The main objective of the program at Guwahati is to promote safe health seeking behavior among the members of the truckers & allied industries. Bhoruka provides treatment of STD's and other common ailments. The identification of new peer educators has begun and regular training programs have been introduced for them. World AIDS Day was commemorated on 1 December 2002 with a jeep & mass rally in collaboration with the Assam State AIDS Control Society, which now supports the project after taking over from the Elton John Foundation.
Reproductive Child Health ProgramThis programme was started in May 2002. A baseline survey showed that lack of decentralisation in planning and service delivery coupled with inadequate or low quality of service were some of the major factors contributing to low accessibility to services and the poor health condition of the community. To lay the ground work for the successful implementation of the project, meetings with mahila mandal members were organised and 300 community health workers identified. In addition, Bhoruka collaborated with the state health department. Till date, 10 immunisation camps have been organised where 257 children and 65 pregnant mothers were immunised.
Truckers Intervention Program:

Truckers Intervention ProgramA workplace intervention in the trucking industry was attempted to sensitise core industry people to support and contribute towards the HIV / AIDS programme. The main objective was to initiate workplace intervention in the transport companies of Kolkata to create awareness and sensitive employees and to advocate a joint partnership between the corporate and development sector to fight HIV / AIDS. At present, 39 big and small companies have partnerships with Bhoruka to carry forward the programme.
