Mission statement

SPECTRA or the Women and Health Initiative emerged out of a concern that the primary health care concept failed to consider gender issues and the specific health needs of women in the provision of health care. The seeds of SPECTRA were sown during 1996, when critical stakeholders from national level came together to review primary health training needs in India. SPECTRA developed into a multi-regional programme for promoting comprehensive, gender sensitive and sustainable primary health care for all, with special emphasis on women, girl children and other disadvantaged persons, throughout their life cycle. SPECTRA also built on and promoted sound local health and healing practices.
