Manipal Hospitals highlighted that women’s health is pivotal and thus, the first step is to take care of herself before her family. For most Indian women, family welfare comes first, personal welfare takes a backseat. As a leading healthcare provider in Bangalore, the hospital is working towards providing the best healthcare and is creating awareness among women to come forward to do their preventive health checks on a regular basis to thwart from high-risk ailments.
Women face many healthcare issues, such as malnutrition, maternal health issues, mental health issues, urinary tract infections, sexual health, including being diagnosed with early breast cancer, and cardiovascular diseases. Keeping these in perspective, Manipal Hospitals has introduced the preventive health packages for women and children.
Speaking on the occasion Dr. Manish Rai, Hospsital Director, Manipal Hospital Old Airport Road, Bengaluru, said, “ This Republic Day, we at Manipal Hospitals have focused on the importance of women’s health. Women always tend to ignore their health concerns, while keeping the welfare of their family as their first priority. We would like to emphasise that women are the biggest source of power to families. We at Manipal Hospitals, are delighted to honour the icons and their unwavering spirit on the occasion of this Republic Day.”
“Women are an important pillar of the family and the community. Families and institutions must make it possible for women to come forward to make decisions that affect their overall health. Women must be encouraged to take of their health, so that that they are able to utilise their full potential and contribute to their own well being and that of their loved ones. I am delighted that Manipal Hospitals is taking a step toward that and identifying the health concerns of these women,” said Ms. Brinda Adige Founder and Mentor – Global Concerns India and Women Rights Activist.
