"I’ve always wanted to build a career for myself. But I was married off early and couldn’t. I never got the opportunity to venture out on my own until I became a part of MAYA Health’s initiative, and started working as a healthcare provider. This program has helped me learn so much. It has enabled me to create an identity for myself and help people in my village." – Shubha from Channapatna.
MAYA Health is a non-profit organization which aims to provide door-to-door medical care in rural parts of the country by tying up with local marginalized women and training them to be healthcare providers, thereby, giving them employment opportunities.
Accenture partnered up with MAYA Health and enabled these healthcare providers by creating an app that helps record basic medical parameters like blood pressure and schedules appointments.
Through this partnership, MAYA Health is enabling rural women to land on their own feet and making them a part of India’s digital economy.
