1. Factory Management
Female garments hardly have any awareness related to family Planning,menstrual regulation, unsafe menstrual regulation, prenatal health care,safe pregnancy, pregnancy spacing, personal hygiene, safe menstrual practices, HIV/AIDS, Sexual transmitted infection/dresses, reproductive tract infection/ etc. This is the major cause of many personal health related problems.
Moreover, this lack of awareness also leads to unsafe and even dangerous pre natal condition among these women, causing their children being born with low birth weight, even still birth. Their lack of awareness related to anti natal care, proper family planning method as well as pregnancy spacing impacts on their own health as well as their future pregnancies and children‟s health conditions. Projects involving awareness rising among the female garments workers regarding pre and anti natal health care, pregnancy preparation and pregnancy spacing, family planning and women‟s personal health management is, therefore a timely response of this need in Bangladesh.
Phulki‟s approach towards this promotion of health awareness amongst the female garments workers involve peer educator group. From 2012, Phulki has expanded the reach of this project through partnership approach.
Phulki also established a referral linkage between Phulki, Garments factory Management & Reproductive Health service providers. Those health centers are adjacent of garments factory premises. As result, Garments Factory workers received health services indeed with subsidy.
