But we see a higher number of incoming messages around women’s health. In fact 62 per cent of the overall monthly topics our team responds back to are related to women’s health. A greater majority of them are related to sexual health topics including pregnancy, menstruation, PCOS etc. In fact, a lot of people send us queries raising from misinformation they spotted on social media or a video they spotted on YouTube.”

The chatbot built on the WhatsApp Business platform was launched in April 2022 to help users access credible health related information. Users can communicate with the chatbot by sending messages on WhatsApp to +91-85078-85079. Users can send across information that they want to verify or questions they want to be answered.

Singh said, “We are focused onempowering women with verified health information this Women’s Day. We have created a large database of the most asked questions around women’s health. Moreover, if the answer is not available in the chatbot’s database, it will verify the answer with the medical board to bring you the most authentic health information.”
