The Community Health Programmes of RUCODE were initiated with the guidance of Caritas Netherlands and CORDAID among the vulnerable villages of Vallioor and Agasteeswarm unions. The HIV/AIDS awareness programme was intensively carried on in all the educational institutions of Kanyakumari and southern part of Tirunelveli Districts. We had produced lot of IEC materials on HIV/AIDS for the public purpose. Latter Mother and Child Health Programmes were initiated with Growth Monitoring Chart both for the under fives and for pregnant women. Village level ‘DAIS’ were promoted to conduct scientific ways of deliveries almost in all our target villages.

The indigenous system of medicines were integrated with community health and the health workers and DAIS were trained in this discipline with the help of qualified siddha medical practisoners.
