The primary objective of ASHWINI is to establish a health system that is accessible, acceptable, effective and sustainable. It should be owned and managed by the people themselves. The most important aspect of this health intervention is the strong emphasis on involving the adivasi community and in training adivasi youth to deliver the services. ASHWINI believe that communities can be empowered by a participatory development process of capacity building and decentralization that culminates in community owned and managed programs and institutions. Ownership of institutions that cater to the mainstream population is a powerful tool in bringing about a change in social equations. 20,000 tribals who are members are the primary beneficiaries of the project. A majority of the tribals live below the poverty line and literacy rates are still very low. Illnesses that are directly related to poverty like malnutrition, tuberculosis, anemia and water borne diseases continue to be a major problem for these communities.

Access to basic and specialised healthcare treatments
The tribal communities in the Gudalur valley of The Nilgiris have no access to even basic healthcare facilities. Preventable deaths are common in the area, shrinking the community's population at a notable rate. ASHWINI started operations in the area in 1990. Dental care had never been people's priority. Patients used to come to ASHWINI only when severely infected. It then established a dental clinic in the year 2003 with the help of Rotary Club of Bangalore and the Toshniwal Trust. All patients are referred to the clinic by the hospital run by ASHWINI or by its own NGO workers. The clinic is open six days a week. About three to five patients are treated everyday, making up to 1800 patients treated last year alone. Slowly, ASHWINI has become successful in shifting the focus from corrective care to preventive care. People now come for routine screenings as well as early treatment. It has helped to prevent morbidity from dental illnesses. Eligibility criteria for this program: The individual has to be from the tribal community Patient should belong to poor socio-economic group
