COVID Taskforce

A collaborative of non-profits and tech companies for tech-enabled Covid-19 response at scale.

Aaroogya, at its core, has worked for women’s health through Prevention, Prediction and Early Detection of common cancers in every corner of the country.

We have created a Digital Taskforce of frontline health workers, who undergo skill development and use data science, behaviour science and Artificial Intelligence tools to detect cancers early.

We have been working in India since 2017 in Meghalaya, West Bengal, Assam, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi NCR, and Uttarakhand.

We have trained 24 master trainers (Aaroogya research and Public Health Fellows), 400+ frontline health care workers (ANM – Auxiliary Nursing Midwives), interviewed and screened 51,000 women, and detected 2900+ cancer cases.

During the health care emergency

Aaroogya has launched a program called “CoVID 19 Pandemic Wellbeing Task Force” along with 20 partner organisations for health information and recommendation by healthcare professionals using teleconsultation with the help of a Helpline Information System and a website for both Normal cell phone and Smartphone user.

For this, we are providing them with telehealth education training in sync with government guidelines. We also have mental health professionals on board to deal with psychological issues amid this crisis.

We respond to PPE kits shortage along with demand mapping for frontline responders, with the help of the Helpline Information System and App.

We have 95 Telehealth educators (Dentists), Telemedicine with general and specialist Registered Medical Practitioners, Mental Health Counsellors, 8 ARPHF 2020 (Aaroogya research and Public health fellows – Pandemic special batch), 30 Medical students as volunteers. Our community partners like Grace foundation and The Renal Project are working on ground in districts of Delhi, Mumbai and 18 other states to execute our PPE distribution. 

The task force aims to reach the last person and promote universal well being in these tough times.
