Godrej Consumer Products Limited extends Project EMBED (Elimination of Mosquito Borne Endemic Diseases) to Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh


Uttar Pradesh, April 25, 2019: Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL) has announced the expansion of ProjectEMBED (Elimination of Mosquito Borne Endemic Diseases) to Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh. Theproject will cover 200 villages in the Bastar and Kondagaon districts of Chhattisgarh, and 200 villages in the Bareily and Badaun districts of Uttar Pradesh. This expansion will impact 1,50,000 people at risk frommalaria. GCPL will work closely with the Ministry of Health in these two states for further scale-up in the years ahead.


On April 25, 2017, World Malaria Day, GCPL committed to support a malaria free India by 2030 and commissioned Project EMBED, which aims to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by vector borne diseases. The projectfocuses on behaviour change campaigns, imparting education and conducting awareness activities for communities at the bottom of the pyramid to be empowered to take charge of their own protection. In its first phase, EMBED covered 207 villages across 2 districts, Mandla and Dindori, in Madhya Pradesh, a state with one of the highest burdens of malaria in India. Within a year, there was a 2% increase in testing for malaria, 11% increase in use of mosquito repellents or bed nets, and 80% of the villages reported a reduced malaria burden.


In its second phase, the project was extended to 7 additional districts, covering 1,300 villages and 2,00,000 households across Jhabua, Sheopur, Shivpuri, Sidhi, Singrauli, Alirajpur and Balaghat with high malaria burdens. By March 2019, 81% of the villages reported zero cases of malaria and there was a 21% increase in the use of mosquito repellents or bed nets.


EMBED has been developed in line with the National Framework for Malaria Elimination (NFME) 2016-2030, which outlines India's agenda to eliminate the disease by 2030. The project also collaborates with the government on environment management and vector control activities as part of Swachh Bharat. In the last couple of years, EMBED has reached 10,16,453 people at high-risk for malaria.


Commenting on the project, Vivek Gambhir, Managing Director, Godrej Consumer Products Limited, said:


“As a company, Godrej has always actively championed social responsibility. We are deeply committed to driving the social progress of the communities that our businesses operate in. We have a 'shared value' approach to business growth and innovation. The idea is to link business success with social progress.


We have been working closely with the Government of Madhya Pradesh since we commissioned EMBED in April 2016. We are very thankful for the support and encouragement that the Government and Family Health India have extended towards the elimination of vector borne diseases in the state. We believe that by building strong partnerships and creating community engagement, we can make huge strides in our efforts towards the elimination of malaria in India by 2030. We are encouraged by the progress made by EMBED in Madhya Pradesh and are looking forward to replicate our intervention and engagement model, and learnings in Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh.


VikasGoswami, Head, Sustainability - Good & Green, Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies, added:


“Behaviour change is the cornerstone of EMBED. It has helped empower communities with the right information and encourage patterns of preventive usage. Our overall goal is to improve awareness related to vector borne diseases, and increase adoption and usage of mosquito prevention strategies, which will significantly contribute to thereduction of the economic burden and loss in productivity caused by these diseases.”
