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.
