Who We are

Established in 1988 and located in Panchkula, Haryana, Foundation for Survival of Women and Children (SWACH), a distinguished national NGO stands as a beacon of hope for women and children across India.

Embarking on a journey across the life spectrum, from the cradle to the silver years, SWACH embraces a mission to accelerate reductions in maternal, neonatal, and child mortality rates and improve quality of survival. Our dedication lies in amplifying the reach of evidence-based interventions, ensuring quality and equity in every facet of health care provision.

In our pursuit, we evaluate programs rigorously, with a spotlight on the vitality of women, children and adolescents. Additionally, we spearhead implementation science research endeavours and collaborate with national and international entities, fuelling innovation and knowledge dissemination.

As a pivotal intermediary, SWACH fosters alliances between national and international organizations vested in community health, catalysing a network of scientific inquiry and practical solutions.


To enhance the well-being of communities, with a keen emphasis on women, newborns, children and adolescents through a holistic approach spanning preventive, promotive, curative, and rehabilitative measures within primary health care.


To foster the survival and development of the community through multifaceted services encompassing health, education, and community development.


SWACH operates from its expansive 1.8-acre campus, which features a residential cum training centre, alongside well-equipped workstations and conference halls. Within this campus, distinct units focus on our core areas of activities such as maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, healthy ageing and digital health.


The organization is staffed by a multidisciplinary team proficient in public health and related disciplines, who are guided by an expert advisory board. Collaborating closely with the sub-national health system, nearly 300 Anganwadi workers and 1670 Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs), SWACH's field teams deliver crucial support and services to communities. SWACH has also made significant contributions in the member countries of South-East Asia by developing and field-testing guidelines and materials.


Having made significant strides in six states across India, SWACH has established a field lab that reaches approximately 2.6 million people. The SWACH campus serves as a collaborative hub, fostering innovation and expertise, driving the organization's mission to enhance healthcare and well-being across diverse communities
