· TARGETED INTERVENTION HIV/Aids AAWARENESS PROGRAMME
It is estimated that more than 90% of HIV transmission in India is related to unprotected sexual intercourse or sharing of injecting equipment between an infected and an uninfected individual. Not everyone in the population has the same risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV. Most of the HIV transmission in India occurs within groups or networks of individuals who have higher levels of risk due to a higher number of sexual partners or the sharing of injection drug equipment.
Since 2008, Targeted Intervention program for Female Sex Workers (FSW) in being implemented by EFRAH with support of DSACS. The main aim of the intervention is to build awareness about HIV/AIDS in the targeted high risk group of female sex workers (FWS) and bring an attitudinal change towards the disease through behavior change communication.

· HEALTH CAMPS
Even after decades of freedom, India is struggling to provide basic health services to its people. According to government sources, in India 45 children die every hour due to respiratory infections. 1 child dies every 2 minutes due to diarrhea. And annually, about 2 million children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases. The situation calls for timely care and diagnosis which can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality especially among children and women. Thus EFRAH organizes one day camp organized in different parts of the Delhi on the basis of health needs of a specific location. These health camps aim at promoting health seeking behavior in the long term and thus, unlike a general curative health camp, these camps also majorly work on building awareness regarding common ailments, family planning methods, nutrition and hygiene and sanitation. These camps provide comprehensive health services free of any cost. These health camps are organized with support from corporate, the government and individual volunteers. EFRAH directly benefitted more than 10000 people for slum and underprivileged community.
