New innovations in use of Technology in Health issues and menstrual cycle presented at the All India Women's Conference
6 March 2023
To move closer toward Human Touch's overall goal of equality of opportunity for all, starting a conversation about gender-specific societal and biological barriers is imperative. Women's health — which includes the influence of menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause — is one of these barriers, and addressing it would make for a fairer society. Kriti Naren and Rajeshwari Mitra — our Core Committee Members — found an opportunity to address this with technology. Kriti, who had previously developed a menstrual cycle tracking software as a Computer Science project at college, along with Rajeshwari, made a case for women-specific health apps at the All India Women's Conference. They highlighted the benefits that these apps can bring Indian women, such as convenience, confidentiality, and, above all, confidence.
