Dear <<First Name>>,

As we put together this year’s last newsletter for you, we happily announce that we are back to the field! With 2020 drawing to a close, we are glad to connect with our field heroes as they help us carry out the impactful work in the backdrop of the pandemic.  Our team at Outline India hopes that you find yourself in similar uplifted spirits and deserving opportunities in 2021!

In this newsletter, we take you through a virtual tour of what we've been up to and what our 2020 looked like!

Here's wishing our readers and supporters a very happy new year!

Stay tuned! Stay healthy! 

Regards,
Prerna,

Ongoing Projects
Outline India is partnering with Oxfam India to study how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted vulnerable communities across Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Kerala, Bihar and Odisha and explore their access to preventive healthcare facilities and services. The study will enquire into the capacity of these groups to spend on healthcare and their ability to "socially distance". 
Outline India is partnering with Ariadne Labs, a joint centre for health systems innovation at the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH), to develop and contribute towards a learning agenda for the Manyata Program which aims to improve the quality of services in the private healthcare sector.
COVID Recovery and Response
We are back on the field!
"कोरोना महामारी  के फैलने और उसके चलते लॉक डाउन के कारण, हमारे
रोज़गार पर बहुत  ही गंभीर प्रभाव
पड़ा है। हमारी आमदनी तो रुक गई , लेकिन दैनिक खर्चे बढ़ते ही जा रहे थे ।
हमें क़र्ज़ लेना पड़ा, जिसके कारण मानसिक दबाब बहुत था ।
ऐसी घड़ी में , फील्ड पर पुनः काम शुरू होने की खबर हमारे लिए एक नई आशा की किरण आई है ।"
- विश्वंभर, अनुसंधानकर्ता , बिहार

 
 (As the pandemic spread and the lockdowns were imposed, our work suddenly hit a pause. Our income stopped but prices of everyday goods kept rising. We have had to take loans; the mental pressure was a lot. We are happy that there is now work in the field again. - Vishwambhar, Field Worker, Bihar)
