Health in Hand for Women

We at AarogyaSeva recently partnered with MyCliniCare – a Bangalore based innovative digital diagnostics solutions company, to use game-changing technology along with micro-volunteering in order to make a small headway in the process of making healthcare accessible to women. At this point in time, we may be a small pebble in the ocean but our goal is to build a bridge across.

The importance of periodic breast screening cannot the over-stated nor the rhetoric of deaths caused by breast cancer mainly due to late stage detection and lack of access to screening and awareness. This is what we intend to change.

This, however, will not be an isolated effort. We intend to provide a comprehensive end to end solution that will include awareness, periodic screening (cost offset by donations, CSR contributions and matching paid scans), consultations using micro-volunteers, follow-up of individuals needing further care, treatment facilitation and referrals, caregiver education as well as help with post-treatment care.

We look forward to a long term association with MyCliniCare and look forward to collaborations with other academic, non-profit, government, institutions and corporations in making this effort a success.

We also hope to extend these services to cervical cancer screening, vaccinations, mental health and reproductive health services in the near future.
