           Basic Development Needs (BDN) Programme District Kasur, Punjab
                                         Progress Report-2011

      The BDN initiative is aimed at empowering communities in distant or deprived areas to identify
      their own development needs and work together towards their realization. It is a multi-sectoral
      concept designed to capture the broad-based support for health and social welfare systems by
      catalyzing integrated community focused development with an inbuilt partnership between
      grass-root communities, civil society organizations, district authorities and public sector line
      Since many of the determinants of health fall outside the ambit of the health system, the
      approach addresses all the social determinants of health such as illiteracy, population growth,
      malnutrition, food insecurity, lack of clean water and poor sanitation, collectively through
      community participation and empowerment in order to transform social lifestyles and enhance
      human development. People are the key element in the BDN change process, they decide upon
      the change, design it, manage it, and carry it out, increasing each individual’s perception about
      ‘self’ and of the community’s own identity. The ultimate objective is to materialize the goal of
      Health For All (HFA) and a better quality of life.
      The BDN programme was introduced in village Balloki of district Kasur, Pakistan in 1996. Since
      then the program has been expanded in the district covering 1.467 million. Some of the salient
      BDN characteristic processes and operational methodologies are summarized below:
      1). Community Organization and Social Preparation
      Community organization and capacity building lays the cornerstone of the BDN initiative.
      Community organization is achieved by broadening the consultation and participation base of
      existing councils at village, sub-district and district levels with true involvement of women and
      youth, religious and other community opinion leaders. This creates a setting where the people
      are able to voice their common concerns and aims collectively.

      The community is organized in Clusters of 40-50 households, based on the population and
      geographic situations. At the village level all the Cluster Representatives (CRs) elect a Village
      Development Committee (VDC). The VDCs are units of organized community structures,
      having hierarchical decision making mechanisms and plans, implements and monitors projects at
      the village level.
      Social preparation is a process aiming to mobilize communities to achieve common goals. The
      process promotes both attitudinal and behavioral changes and transforms people from passive
      recipients to self-confident and self-reliant executors. This transformation generates the
      necessary leadership, and skills for social communication, decision making and community
      action for health and poverty reduction.
      The priority program areas most often recognized by these community leaders include PHC
      services especially maternal and child care, nutrition and reproductive health, besides the
      availability of safe drinking water and promoting environmental sanitation, enhancing primary

                                                                                          Page 2 of 33
education and literacy activities with an emphasis on female literacy, Women development and
gender mainstreaming processes.

2). Integrated development through Intersectoral Collaboration:
Inter sectoral collaboration is an integral part of the BDN strategy that makes the representatives
of the key government departments – like Health, Education, water supply, sanitation,
Agriculture, live stock, social welfare and women development work together as a BDN inter-
sectoral team, coordinated by the district and Provincial development authorities. This team is
trained on the concepts of integrated socio-economic development and on community
mobilization and empowering techniques, to subsequently guide the community in the
implementation of social and income generating micro-development schemes and build their
capacities in project management and involve them in the developmental process at the grass
root level.
Identifying local needs through Baseline surveys: At the very outset, initial benchmarks are set
regarding the demographic and socio economic indicators of the local population on the basis of
a base line survey. The VDCs, CRs and the community based Lady Health Workers are trained
on data collection by the BDN Inter sectoral team. The data collected is analyzed to identify and
prioritize needs. Following this the community holds consensus building and priority setting
workshops where community representatives engage in planning specific projects, on a
community cost sharing basis, reflecting specific community needs, taking in account the fact
that an equitable distribution of these resources and projects is ensured over the entire target
i). Community Organization and Mobilization:
A total of 45 VDCs, have been organized with 765 Cluster representatives in the district. In
addition, 31 Citizen Community Boards (CCBs) and civil society organizations, 4 health
committees, 3 NGOs, 12 women’s’ organizations and 6 youth groups have also been organized,
trained and actively engaged in health and social development.

ii). Health and Nutrition:

 All the BDN VDCs, Youth and women organizations and Civil Society organizations (CSOs)
are engaged in health action. Besides, a total of 165 LHWs were trained and involved in EPI,
MNCH, Malaria and Tuberculosis Control efforts. In addition, 532 Women Health Volunteers
were selected by the community and trained on Home health care and growth monitoring.
Through BDN GAVI-CSO Project 03 RHCs have been strengthened for MNCH services, while
02 Community-based MCH centers, completely managed and sustained by local VDCs, have
been established in areas where no such facility existed.
The community based Lady Health Workers (LHWs) and women health volunteers (WHVs)
work in close partnership with the community representatives and continue to implement various
health care programs. Through their routine house to house visits in their assigned areas, they
oriented more than 50,000 mothers and CBAs on Home health care (HHC), which includes
health promotion and education, nutrition counseling and growth monitoring, antenatal care, safe

                                                                                     Page 3 of 33
and clean delivery, postnatal care including family planning and self-breast-examination,
childhood immunization, TB -DOTS, Roll Back Malaria, Disease Early Warning System
(DEWS), timely and correct management of diarrheal diseases and acute respiratory infections.
Prevention of home-based accidents and correcting attitudes towards the mentally ill. The LHWs
act as the actual implementers in this program, supported by their supervisors, vaccinators and
Women Health Volunteers of the respective area. The trained LHWs are being assisted by the
vaccinators and cluster representatives, in immunizing all target children and women against EPI
diseases. WHV and community representatives help in identifying and motivating target groups.
This has resulted in virtually 95% EPI coverage in areas covered by LHWs, no case of polio and
neonatal tetanus, no outbreak of measles, improved ante-natal care and contraceptive prevalence,
lowering in infant mortality, reduction in malnourished children, and generally improved health
service delivery. Awareness campaigns concerning key public health issues were also carried out
regularly in all the sites.
The BDN - GFATM Round III grant and GAVI –CSO alliance support funding enabled expansion of
community organization/mobilization to most parts of the BDN districts, to involve the communities in
the cure and prevention of Malaria and Tuberculosis employing the BDN strategies, including early case
detection, treatment completion and default prevention through trained community volunteers. Diagnostic
facilities for Malaria and TB were strengthened in 16 diagnostic centers through provision of
microscopes, reagents and supplies, while 22 laboratory technicians were trained in Malaria and TB
The active involvement of communities led to efficient management of mosquito breeding sites, indoor
residual spray of more than 10,000 houses, and social marketing of 6,000 long lasting Insecticide Treated
Bed Nets (LLINS) among pregnant women and young children, creating a revolving fund from the
subsidized sale. Substantial gains were made in Malaria control, by 85 % patients receiving correct
diagnosis and treatment of uncomplicated (Vivax) Malaria and 96% of patients with Falciparum Malaria
receiving correct diagnosis and treatment. Poor TB patients were also supported through microcredit, to
pull them out of the perpetual cycle of poverty and ill health.
Healthy School Initiative was undertaken in 10 schools of the district, mostly girl schools. This included
medical screening of students, Health education for promotion of healthy lifestyle, including personal
hygiene and provision of clean water and sanitation facilities.

iii). Gender Mainstreaming and Women Development:
The BDN program has contributed significantly towards gender mainstreaming and
empowerment of women through education, capacity building, and income generating skills,
participation in decision-making and developmental initiatives. A total number of 16 women
vocational training centers (WVTCs) were established, through community co-financing, where
skills in sewing, knitting, handicraft, embroidery and other vocations were imparted along with
basic literacy to 8,500 women.
These women volunteers were also been trained on nutrition and growth monitoring skills and
provided with weighing scales and growth monitoring charts to make them partners in nutrition
promotion and health education.
Training and Outreach Programme for Ending Gender Based Violence Project conducted 09
capacity building trainings on WHO GBV and Medico-legal Guidelines Manual in which male
and female participants 205 and 67 in numbers. During the year 28 sensitization/awareness
session were organized, 1079 female and 821 male participated. One research study on Rapid
Assessment on GBV parameters in Kasur district.

                                                                                           Page 4 of 33
Sensitization/awareness sessions in district Kasur during-2011

12 Women VDCs have been formed to enable women to actively participate in the decision
making process and hence contributes to their strategic empowerment. 1,300 small scale loans
have been provided to needy women enabling them to start their own businesses. The local
women have now formed women organizations, Civil society organizations (CSOs) and NGOs,
got them registered and getting donor funding to expand and sustain their activities.

iv). Provision of Clean drinking Water and Sanitation:
The BDN communities accorded the highest priority to provision of clean drinking water and
sanitation. The inter-sectoral team technically supported the communities to plan feasible
solutions and designing / implementation of projects like construction of water tanks/reservoirs,
installation of tube wells, hand pumps and provision of water pipes to expand the water supply
schemes. These projects planned, implemented and sustained by the communities are providing
clean drinking water to more than 200,000 individuals. Similarly, more than 47,724 households
benefited from sanitary latrines through cost sharing basis. Campaigns are regularly organized by
the local communities on Garbage collection, safe disposal of waste and cleaning overflowing
drainage channels. Accordingly, a series of awareness campaigns were undertaken to sensitize
the local population about the health hazards caused due to use of unsafe drinking water and bad
sanitation practices. Water availability has not only resulted in reduction of diarrhea and other
water borne diseases but has also helped reduce the anguish of rural women to fetch clean water
from long distances, besides the economic benefits to the people by crops cultivation or growing
of seasonal vegetables for household consumption.
Partnership building and resource mobilization– a cornerstone of BDN Implementation:
Developing effective partnerships has remained the haul mark of the BDN program. The BDN
organizations have worked effectively with the partners and the district and provincial
governments to tap financial and technical resources for program sustainability and expansion.
Registration of VDCs as Community Citizens’ Boards (CCBs) and collaboration with local
NGOs will guarantee the program’s sustainability in future. Certain VDCs have established
linkages with national and donor agencies. Registration of BDN Program as an NGO, in 2005
provided the opportunity to secure funding from GFATM (round III), GAVI - CSO, UNDP,
government and a number of donors for program expansion. District government and federal
funding has also been available to the Program.

Improved Governance by community participation and co- financing:
The BDN communities have established management Committees to enhance community
participation and improve governance of the basic health and educational services. A system of
co- financing for sustainability of 03 community based MCH centers has been established. Such
measures have resulted in dramatic turnaround in the delivery of quality services to the local,
population. During Jan - Dec 2011 the total numbers of patients 25,572 seeking treatment in
these centers Immunization services delivered to 1109, antenatal check up visits in numbers 3224
Total number of deliveries conducted at these centers is 306 and family planning services have
registered 1315. All these centers increasingly enjoy the confidence of the local community.

                                                                                    Page 5 of 33

Dadu, Sindh

                           PROGRESS REPORT 2011

 The Project objectives are
       1. Bringing about general socio-economic development through an improvement in the

        2. status of the people of district Dadu and Jamshoro.

        3. Reducing poverty through an increase in the consumption power of the poor,
            generation of employment, participation of communities in development.

        4. Somewhat reducing the financial burden of the public exchequer.

        5. Effecting an improvement in the quality of life of the people through an improvement
            in the health indicators through integrated socioeconomic development and health
            promotion through increased literacy and environmental health measures.

 It may be mentioned that Poverty reduction is the main policy theme of Government of Pakistan.
 The proposed project ultimately aims at reduction of poverty through improvement of social as
 well as economic indicators with maximum inputs in the health sector.

 The Basic Development Needs (BDN) Programme was launched in year 1996 in union council
 Bubak taluka Sehwan aims at achieving a better quality of life, with an ultimate goal of attaining
 good health. It is an integrated socio-economic development approach based on full community
 involvement, community organization and self-reliance through self-management and self-
 financing by the people. It is a self sustained development strategy based on bottom-up planning
 which offers vital support to inter-sectoral collaboration for correcting urban rural imbalance,
 transformation of social lifestyle and overall human development.

 It has been widely acknowledged that certain major determinants of ill health fall outside the
 scope of the health sector and are mainly related with socio-economic and cultural aspects such
 as poverty, illiteracy, and over-population. These inhibiting factors adversely affect the
 development, quality of life and heath status of communities. The World Health Organization is
 therefore involved in assisting consolidated global efforts to reduce poverty. After successfully
 launching the BDN programme in some other regional countries, the program was introduced in
 Pakistan during 1995. The Ministry of Health, provincial Departments of Health and the World
 Health Organization jointly undertake the initiative, and the program is now functional in 7 areas
 in the country including Dadu and Jamshoro districts in Sindh.

 Since the start of the BDN program in Sindh, thousands of families have been directly benefited
 through micro–credit enterprises in livestock (milking animals and poultry farming), agriculture,
 skilled and unskilled trades and women development. Communities have been responsible for
 25-30% cost sharing of small scale enterprise at implement phase and forthcoming up to the cost
 of the project, at initial/implementation phase and total cost of project operation. They are also

                                                                                    Page 11 of 33
responsible for the entire management of these income-generating projects.
The fundamental purpose of development is to improve the overall quality of life of the people
with a major emphasis on improving their health status. The economically marginalized sections
of the people with low income often suffer from ill health coupled with illiteracy and have
usually few opportunities for education, training or employment. These inadequacies further
intensify the vulnerability of these groups to diseases and ill health, which is why the capacity to
develop itself is dependent on health. As a result, the health sector is a legitimate pathway for
social transformation and any investment in this sector can form the basis of all economic and
human development.

In the Basic Development Needs (BDN) concept, health implicitly constitutes an entry point and
an integral element of the indivisible package of basic needs necessary for poverty reduction and
sustained human development. Furthermore, BDN is an effective strategy for inter-sectoral
collaboration and a tool to enhance the ability of the people to contribute actively in an effort to
bring about sustained improvement in quality of life. This dynamic relationship between ill
health and poverty and the impoverishing nature of illness illustrates the valuable role that has to
be played by the healthcare systems.

BDN interventions on primary health care and poverty reduction are based on a conceptual
framework, whereby the implementation of health and nutrition activities are closely coordinated
with ongoing health and other related interventions such as education, water, sanitation and
means of increasing income. The gains in the latter are partly invested on health and education,
which together form the basis of social development. Through social mobilization of the
programme, the value of seeking and investing on essential health interventions is enhanced,
creating a climate that allows the growth of the requisite capabilities for bringing about poverty
reduction on a sustainable basis. BDN could thus pave the way for the development of
prepayment schemes that finance essential health interventions through public sector and
community co-financing.

During the pilot phase carried out through a WHO grant, the major objectives of the BDN were
to improve health and literacy, alleviate poverty by generation of employment and enhancing the
capacity of communities. By doing so the financial burden of the public sector was somewhat
lessened. The objectives were achieved through investment in the following sectors:

Major social projects carried out in partnership with the local communities include:

    Extension of a comprehensive health care program with an emphasis on immunization,
     maternal and child health care, thereby ensuring the full coverage for all households.

Promotion of Female Education In BDN Area By Reducing Dropout Ratio And Increasing
literacy Rate In Female;

Female education was big challenge in the BDN area; most of the Govt. Schools were non
functional due lake of staff. In the girls Primary and middle Schools in BDN area the drop out
ratio was increasing day by day. This serious problems was the main hurdles for female students
enrolment in girls School education.

BDN accepted this challenge by upgrading the existing Govt. Primary Schools to Middle and
Middle Schools to High Schools by construction of additional rooms in the premises of Schools
and by provision of teachers to ensure the enrolment of female student from Primary to Middle
and Middle to High Schools.

By adopting these fruitful strategies the drop out ratio of females has been reduced substantially.
Now the Literacy rate in the females is increasing day by day and now they are receiving High
School Education in their home towns. Currently more then 500 female students are studying in
these schools. These schools are also providing Health Education to the students to improve the
Health status of their families.

Following these pioneer steps taken by BDN now the Government has started the up gradation of
these schools properly and ensuring the availability of staff. It is expected that by the year 2012
Government will take the charge most of these schools and BDN will be able to withdraw these
resources and will be able to utilize in some other Projects.

                                                                                    Page 16 of 33
Women Empowerment through skill development, Income Generation and Adult Literacy
It was observed with great concern that in BDN area there is Male Domination mainly because
they are the only source of income generation. Females were unable to go out of their homes for
earnings due to lack of education and skills.

In order to cope up with this imbalance Social difference, BDN has started to establish Women
Vocational Centers by providing teachers and equipment with the help of Village Development
Committees. These centers are providing health education, adult literacy and skills of tailoring,
embroidery, knitting, carpet making and handicraft to generate their own sources of income for
betterment of their living standard. All the activity in these centers are monitored frequently by
the WVTC Supervisor and Program Manager for smooth running of the centers. Due to
concerted efforts of BDN more than Three Hundred female has been trained from these
Vocational Centre in different skills in the year 2010. Now these females are working in their
homes for various garments outlets and retail shops and giving financial support to their families.

                                    Progress report-2011


 The Tehsil level Frontier Region (FR) Peshawar is Federally Administered Tribal Area is
 inhabited by the Afridi tribesmen. The total population of FR Peshawar is about 120,000 with an
 Annual Growth Rate of 2.2% with a density of population of 206/sq. km. The population of
 BDN area is 32,710 which is 27.25% of the total population. The average house hold size is 8.8
 while the total area is 261 The Regional Director, WHO inaugurated the launching of

 attended by the Federal Minister, Health. Since then a number of projects mainly of provision of
 safe drinking water, income generation, computer literacy, strengthening of health facilities,
 women development, school health services etc. have successfully been implemented. On
 finding the BDN site feasible and Program in FR- Peshawar as quite successful the GLOBAL
 FUND also commenced/ concluded its activities           (2006-08) against the menaces of AIDs,
 Malaria and Tuberculosis through initiating different interventions ranging from preventive,
 curative measures to the provision of micro credits to the needy ones as supportive drive. These
 additional initiatives of GF in close collaboration of the BDN Program further cemented
 confidence of the masses on pioneer program. 30% and 80% of the total population of FR-
 Peshawar have been covered under the BDN and GFATM Program respectively. The community
 of this lagged behind area is hopping more developmental interventions from the WHO/ GOP for
 speedy mitigation of their sufferings.

These meetings aimed to deliberate upon the BDN Program related issues to amicably solve
them in order to provide conducive atmosphere for the program different stake holders so that
the ultimate beneficiaries of the projects implemented are given a fair chance to reap their
advantages. During 2011 the sustainability of the projects implemented was analysed through
physical visits to almost all the projects completed. Heat was kept on campaign for recovery of
micro credit extended under BDN and GFATM programs. Different queries of the BDN
community were timely responded so that the confidence of the community is not shaken for the
sole purpose of keeping the community ready for cooperation.

                                     2nd Sunday Meeting.

During 2011, look after of the assets available from GFATM was ensured under strict vigilance.
The month of September 2011 remained quite busy for the reason that the BDN program
authorities and community were optimistic that a call would be given in the meetings / workshop
under the chairmanship of Dr. Muhammad Assai, Regional Advisor, Community- Based
Initiative on September 13-14, 2011. During the first quarter of September 2011, series of
meetings of the Cluster Representatives, Village Development Committees (VDCs) Chairmen,
Coordinating Chairman, the Representatives of the line Departments and Projects Authorities
took place in which draft project proposals were prepared after detail consultations which were
later on handed over to the Program Manager for analyzing and presenting before the next JPRM

ensured through visits and telephonic contacts.
During the month of December in series of meetings a modus operandi was chalked out to utilize
the finances accumulated (to the tune of Rs. 0.5 million plus) from recovery of the loans / credits
extended by Global Fund Program on projects of public interest.
In the last meeting of 18th December, 2011 the community representatives thanked all concerned
specially the WHO and Ministry of Health for their endeavors already undertaken for
overcoming the miseries of the poor masses of the backward area of FR- Peshawar. They further
assured all out support for taking forward the Basic Development Needs (BDN) program on the
path of success.

The BDN community direly needs construction of washrooms for improvement of sanitation
status, provision of more drinking water facilities, strengthening of existing health facilities and
reorganization of village development committees through refresher courses specially on health
for CRs and VDCs. The intensity of sanitation problem can be mitigated if Rs.0.5 million funds
available from Global Fund program is allowed for construction of washrooms. A community
gathering is reflected below;
The community will finalize its Draft Project Proposals (Bulk of the projects for sanitation
improvement) in February 2012 for implementation.
