Taking Action for Our Health: Celebrating International Day of Action for Women's Health 2024

At Bhagirathi Neotia Woman and Child Care Centre, we believe that every woman deserves access to quality healthcare and the power to make informed decisions about her well-being. That's why we're thrilled to join the global conversation on International Day of Action for Women's Health, observed annually on May 28th.

This year's theme resonates deeply with us: Standing Up for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (SRHR).

Why SRHR Matters

SRHR encompasses a woman's right to access contraception, safe pregnancy and childbirth, and essential information about her sexual health. It's about empowering women to make choices about their bodies, families and futures.

Unfortunately, millions of women worldwide still lack access to these fundamental rights. This can lead to unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions and a higher risk of maternal mortality.

Taking Action Together

On International Day of Action for Women's Health, we encourage you to join us in taking action:

  • Educate Yourself: Explore resources from trusted organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) or the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to learn more about SRHR.
  • Spread Awareness: Share information and stories about the importance of SRHR on social media using #May28th.
  • Advocate for Change: Support organizations working to ensure access to quality healthcare and SRHR services for all women.
  • Prioritize Your Own Health: Schedule regular checkups with your doctor and feel empowered to ask questions and express your concerns.

Across our healthcare brands, we're committed to doing our part. We develop services and resources that support women throughout every stage of life. We also partner with organizations that champion women's health and well-being.

Together, let's create a world where every woman has the knowledge, resources and power to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
