But progress towards gender parity has slowed in many places. The first step towards this is striving for better healthcare of women. Women in India tend to neglect their own health while caring for their families. If a woman is healthy she can take care of her family and meet her responsibilities better. MIF is committed towards taking action to accelerate gender parity, making specialized healthcare services accessible to the less privileged people of the society. Through this free medical camp, our endeavour is to address the health concerns of the people who are often neglected due to monetary constraints. This initiative will benefit the needy and deserving.”
