About the Project

Avni Project, previously called "OpenCHS (Open Community Health System)", started, in mid-2016, as a open source community health worker platform designed to aid programs operating below primary health center level — i.e. sub-center, village and slum level. It has since matured into a platform that can support most field work use cases, not just health. Avni is now implemented for water, social welfare services, educational outcome assessment and health. Avni (अवनि, અવની, ਅਵਨੀ, அவ்னி, అవనీ, ಅವ್ನಿ) means "earth" in Hindi.


avni is developed by a team experienced in applying technology in the public and health from Samanvay Foundation and development efforts are funded by Social Alpha and Project Tech4Dev (Chintu Gudiya Foundation). Recently Soft Corner and Persistent Systems have also joined the product development efforts with Samanvay.
