For women in underprivileged areas, Online Chikitsa Mitra organizes an India-wide free health check-up camp

18th March 2024: Online Chikitsa Mitra, a rural health-tech start-up, reaffirmed its dedication to women’s health and empowerment through a successful free online health check-up camp held last Friday. The camp reached out to over 100 women across the nation, providing them with comprehensive health assessments and expert medical consultations from specialist doctors.

In India, many women face challenges in accessing quality healthcare, with approximately 50 million grappling with reproductive health issues. Understanding the significant influence of health on women’s lives, Online Chikitsa Mitra demonstrated its commitment by prioritizing their well-being. Through this initiative, the start-up offered thorough health check-ups to women nationwide, covering essential parameters like blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation, weight, height, and temperature. It also facilitated subsequent online consultations, ensuring a holistic approach to women’s health.

Strategically spanning over 50 medical stores in regions including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Goa, and Karnataka, Online Chikitsa Mitra organized its camp to maximize accessibility for women in diverse locations.

A team of esteemed medical specialists, including gynecologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, pediatricians, nutritionists, and more, led by Dr. T.P. Singh, the distinguished Clinical Advisor at Online Chikitsa Mitra and Secretary General of the Uttar Pradesh TB Association, provided guidance and support during both the initial check-up and subsequent consultations. Additionally, the start-up partnered with SKD Hospital and Mayo Hospital in Lucknow to ensure the camp’s smooth facilitation.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind the camp, Smriti Tandon, Co-founder of Online Chikitsa Mitra, shared, “The idea for this initiative stemmed from our observation of many female patients facing obstacles in completing their treatment due to financial constraints related to travel. We aimed to improve their well-being by offering accessible healthcare, facilitating comprehensive treatment, and expanding our reach and impact on the communities we serve.”

With a proven history of positively impacting lives and enhancing healthcare accessibility, Online Chikitsa Mitra aims to organize more online consultation camps as well as on-site health camps soon.
