DIMAPUR — The ‘SAARTHI-Awareness on Wheel’ campaign on family planning, organised under Mission Parivar Vikas, concluded in Longleng.

According to a press release, conducted by the District Health Society Longleng, during the programme, sessions were held on March 27 at Netnyu and Kangching, and on April 1 at Nyang, Yongam, Oushok Hukphang, and Pongching.

The SAARTHI-Vehicle is a smartly designed vehicle equipped with information, education, and communication (IEC) materials and family planning commodities, as noted in the release.

The distribution of IEC materials, condoms, and oral contraceptive pills was also done.
