Health Awareness & Health Education Camps about Teenage problems of Gilrs – Dr. Chitralekha V. Krishna (July 2011 – September 2011)
The programmes started on 09.07.2011 at Government High School, Nidige, Shivamogga Taluk. Totally 23 programs were done at various Government High Schools in Shivamogga Taluk in a period of 3 months.

The Honorable Government of Karnataka is organizing a program – KISHORI – since 2001, which is a health education program for Middle School Girls (Class 4 to Class 7). But similar program was extended in association with PRASTUTA ® for girls of High School in Shivamogga Taluk from July – September 2011.

The programs were attended by the Students of Government High Schools and majority of schools were in Village areas. The girls of the schools were benefited by the programs and it was evident by the interest of the students and the questions by them. The doubts & questions of the girl students were answered by Dr. Chitralekha V. Krishna in a pleasing & understanding way. The problems of the teen-age girls are more complex and are best understood & managed by health awareness rather than only treatment. In this view, our programs were a great success. The programs were mainly intended to make the teenage girls aware about the changes that occur in their body (both physical & psychological) during puberty, what is normal & what is abnormal during the times of puberty & menstrual cycles and social impact of puberty. The teenage girls were encouraged to rise their doubts & questions and they were answered.
