Facebook live in Kannada on PCOS

Bengaluru: A new series of Facebook live in Kannada titled “Nimma Aarogya, Nimma Savaalu” will be launched on 17 January 2022 at 3 p.m. to specifically address questions related to PCOS — Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

An estimated one in five Indian women suffer from PCOS. The programme aims to raise awareness amidst the Kannada-speaking community all over the world about women’s healthcare, and break the language barrier in which health information is delivered, thereby reaching every girl and every woman. It is a mission undertaken by Federation of International Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (FIGO) Chair of Well Woman Healthcare, Dr. Hema Divakar. 

This series is part of Health For Her, a special initiative and app being launched by the organization Artist For Her, with support from Divakars Service Trust, in association with DocSpacePlus.

The six-episode series, which will go live every 15 days on Mondays at 3 p.m., will address several questions in a conversational style so that the prevailing myths and misconceptions in the space of women’s health are dispelled. In the coming weeks, various topics of interest spanning menstrual health, maternal health, mental health and menopausal health will be addressed.

This will go a long way in empowering girls and women to take measures for preventing illness and promoting wellness.

The program will have the best of national experts from the region, who will speak in Kannada on the issue of PCOS.

The series will soon be available in other Indian regional languages also. The talks will later be made available on YouTube as well.

After 17 January, questions can be asked on the HealthforHer app (Google Play Store & IOS) to reach more doctors.

Date of the Facebook Live launch: 17th January 2022 – 3 p.m.
