3.Mother and Child Hospital for rural area
The rural areas of 100 villages GBS currently working in block Jamwaramgarh in district Jaipur is lacking adequate medical and health care facilities and services, particularly the women and children in almost a radius of 50 km. Hospitals and dispensaries for the women and children are located in the big cities and towns only nearly 50 km. away from the area. Many of the poor rural women die before reaching these hospitals.  
The level of awareness on health issues among the women and their knowledge on reproductive and sexual health is quite negligible. Hence the situation of women and children's health is pitiable. The rate of mothers' morbidity and mortality and infant mortality is very alarming in the area. The rate of infant (children below 5 years of age) mortality is 76 per 1,000 and the maternal mortality is 445 per 100,000 in the area much high than the national ratio. 
Also, the spread HIV/AIDS is increasing very fast in the rural areas. The facts notified during a survey carried out by GBS in 2007 in 150 villages in Rajasthan are quite startling. Only 56% rural youth between the age group of 18-40 and 28% women are aware of the pandemic. Only 19% women have the correct knowledge on infection HIV and other STDs/RTIs. 
GBS has , therefore, planned a 50 bedded Mother & Child Hospital to be established in the midst of block Amber and Jamwaramgarh earliest possible to provide the women with high class gynecologic, obstetric, pre and post natal services and children with appropriate health care at nominal costs.
