Women sitting outside a clinic

Where do women find sexual and reproductive health services in Hyderabad?

 

 

Family Planning Association of India (FPAI) Hyderabad :

  • FPAI Hyderabad, 6-3-883/F, Topaz Building, Punjagutta Office Colony Lane,Punjagutta, Hyderabad, 500082

We have been mapping FPAI Clinics in different parts of India. We went visiting the FPAI Hyderabad Branch and it was one of the biggest independent branch we have seen. It was an independent building, in the middle of the city. It had a lovely park outside the hospital. Interestingly enough there was a diagnostic Centre right below it.

The registration fee is Rs 50. There would be a minimal cost for further procedures required.

We went inside the first floor of the building. It had a lot of patients and their families sitting right outside the Out Patient Department section. There were 2 surgeries that were conducted that day. We meet the person in charge who was willing to show us around.

The place had a doctor, a counsellor, some operating rooms and a ward as well.

They even had some posters that provided information regarding Medical Termination of Pregnancy and the number of months under which one could avail the services. We met the Auxiliary Nurse Midwife who was present at the clinic and who also showed us some of the rooms as well as some of the services available. At this specific clinic they only provided abortions for up to 12 weeks ( 1st Trimester).
