With more than 200,000 women employees in the garment sector in Bengaluru suffering from Anaemia, the Karnataka government has collaborated with ARTIST to tackle the issue at a micro level and then extend the programme to the rest of the state. As part of the programme, over the subsequent 100 days, the women workers were screened for Anaemia by the staff of the ESI Hospitals across Bengaluru. ARTIST then deployed its latest ‘point of care’ equipment at the screening centres to capture data on health parameters of women undergoing tests. On the basis of the test results, oral or injectable iron were administered to Anaemic factory workers at the ESI Hospitals in Bengaluru.



Life-threatening cervical cancer is on the rise, next only to breast cancer in India. A nationwide campaign was conducted seeking to institutionalize vaccination against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) for girls in the age group of 9-13 years. The demands have to be met by strengthening the supply side and empower the mothers and daughters with the information and access to seek help. Mobile Apps and Online video chat, WhatsApp groups, Helpline, dedicated YouTube channels create access to information and ARTIST is exploring the use of digital technology to reach as far and as many in spreading awareness.
