COVID-Related Program Changes

Posted on: September 22nd, 2020 by Arogya World

Due to the realities of the COVID pandemic, we have made or accelerated changes over the last few months to our India programming:

  • We are digitizing our schools program so adolescent health learning continues, even if schools don’t open optimally.
  • We are developing (in collaboration with Librum and its principals, Harvard’s Dr. Shekhar Saxena and Dr. Vikram Patel), mental health criteria for workplaces, a first in India. Stay tuned for more.
  • We are adapting our stress reduction messages for COVID times for employees in India.
  • As part of Confederation of Indian Industry’s high-powered Public Health Council, and as part of the WHO-backed NIMHANS-led initiative on NCD prevention, Arogya is poised to advance workplace health in post-COVID times in India.

We will announce more details in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
