Challenge

Over 6 million people died in India due to non-communicable diseases according to a 2016 Global Burden of Disease study. Rural children have no access to preventive school health screening program and healthcare facilities are far & few. They are unaware of various symptoms of non-communicable diseases involving nutritional, cardio-respiratory, hypertension, endocrine & kidney disorders. Delayed identification of such preventable disorders could lead to permanent disability & death in children

Solution

'My Child Health' aims to correct this in rural schools by comprehensively screening for Growth, Development, Blood Pressure, Vision, Hearing & most importantly Behavioral, Emotional & Psychological health that positively influences their overall development. Children will be assessed by skilled medical personnel using precision medical equipment & state-of-the-art software which gives a consolidated, customized and real-time health & risk report advocating early intervention for better outcomes

Long-Term Impact

Early Identification & Intervention reduces the burden of death & disability among children to ensure a healthy future generation. 'My Child Health' school health screening educates parents & teachers to eliminate stigma towards illnesses of mind & body. Our long term effort could impact our policy makers to take up child health-screen as a routine policy. It isn't enough to ensure our future generation gets a better planet but also, to inspire & ensure a healthy generation for a better planet
