“COVID Teeka Sang Surakshit Van, DhanaurUddyam” campaign
“COVID Teeka Sang Surakshit Van, DhanaurUddyam” campaign was launched by the Tribal Affairs Minister in July this year to accelerate vaccine coverage among tribal communities in India. It was jointly implemented by the TRIFED, UNICEF and WHO.
The campaign aims to leverage 45,000 Van Dhan Self Help Groups of the TRIFED to promote livelihoods with health. It spreads public awareness about the country-wide COVID-19 vaccine roll out. It emphasized that the COVID-19 vaccines are free and accessible in nearby centers. The campaign resulted in the vaccination of around 6.73 crore people belonging to the tribal community.
