    Know Us

    MAMTA, a movement initiated by paediatrician, Dr Sunil Mehra, began by designing interventions for the underprivileged communities in Tigri, an urban Delhi slum in 1990. Since its inception, MAMTA has embarked on initiatives focusing on building capacities, forging partnerships, creating networks and actions that advance political commitment and investment in health and rights of the marginalized.

    MAMTA has promoted strategic solutions, policies and programming, research and global learning in the fields of Maternal Newborn Child Health and Nutrition, Young People’s Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, HIV, TB and Non Communicable Diseases, with special focus on promoting rights, gender equality and equity.

    Today, MAMTA mobilizes community, strengthens health systems, networks and conducts policy level advocacy in close partnership with the government and public health systems, civil societies, academic institutions, corporate sector and community at large. MAMTA also serves South and South East Asia region as a technical support in addressing health and development issues.
