The Society has pioneered in publication of a variety of IEC material, particularly in Hindi, to fulfill the needs of authentic information in easily comprehensible language and style. "Jeevaniya", a popular bimonthly Health Care magazine was published for ten years (1989-98), both in Hindi & English as part of our Awareness Campaign to promote revitalization of Local Health Traditions & Traditional Health Systems. Though the magazine did become very popular, with more than 2000 subscribers and circulation across the country, its publication had to be suspended due to unavoidable reasons.
