Who we are?

“Democratising health care till last mile”

Aaroogya is an audacious Not for profit organisation working in Indian rural areas since 3 years. We are building a technology platform and toolkit for government and private front line health workers in vernacular languages. This toolkit is being built with Oncologists, Technology leaders like CISCO, Social problem solvers like The Nudge, N/Core, Intelehealth and Artificial Intelligence screening tool companies like Niramai.

It is an inclusive solution for the semi- skilled frontline health- workers to carry out prevention protocols, relevant data collection about women’s lifestyle, electronic health records, primary and secondary physical / conventional and Artificial Intelligence driven simple screening for Breast, Cervical and Oral areas.

The Problem

One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes and 1 out of 3 women diagnosed with breast cancer dies in India, a large majority of  them can be saved by early detection of the cancer. Lack of skilled manpower, data, infrastructure, accessibility, social unawareness and ignorance leads to the invisible global emergency.

Mission

To create awareness by training front line workers, do health screenings, and then use AI tools and data modelling to do risk profiling of women and direct them to the right course of action (medical treatment, avoidance of certain risk factors etc.) to enable early detection of cancers.
