Science Publication

While these are periodicals, TNSF's Science Publications Unit produces books on a variety of themes. The book, Anuvilirindu Aagayam Varai, a collection of essays published in 1993, was once adjudged `Best popular science book in Tamil' and has since been named as a textbook by two universities in the state for their undergraduate studies in Tamil, in the technical communication component.

Health for All

Apart from health education campaigns, TNSF has been involved in action programmes for health in several districts, particularly in Vellore, Ramanathapuram, Madurai, Pudukottai and Virudhunagar. While many health and sanitation efforts have been tried out, the most successful have been the efforts in the area of women and child health care.
