Bio-Services is “not-for-profit” and is independent of commercial and political interests. The Bio-Services web portal was created in the year 2011 with a mission to facilitate knowledge transfer and raise awareness with regard to preventive healthcare with a focus on women and girls.
Why women and girls ? According to “World Health Organization”, the health of women and girls is of particular concern because in many societies they are disadvantaged by discrimination rooted in socio-cultural factors.
The core objective of Bio-Services is to unite the scientific community and the masses on a common platform to transfer knowledge about common preventable disease in women and girls. We intend to accomplish the following objectives:
a. Prevention and Disease Control:
(i) Encourage medical practitioners to promote screening and vaccination within communities by increasing awareness about them as well as emphasizing the role of a healthy diet and exercise.
(ii) Work closely with healthcare providers to raise awareness about the acceptability of vaccination by pre-adolescent girls and their parents in India as well as public health agencies on methods to improve and sustain immunization coverage.
b. Public Engagement Activities:
(i) Engage people through activities like workshops, public health lectures, art exhibitions, online discussions, social media & continuous medical education and to spread awareness about the importance of preventive health care, i.e. screening and vaccination.
(ii) Organize talks about specific public health issues and their impact on society at large delivered by medical professionals or scientists. These experts could also provide scientific advice and/or consultation as and when required.
c. Health Education and Research:
(i) Educate the masses about the most prevalent gynecologic cancers through sharing knowledge on the latest developments in scientific research, diagnostic tools and technologies and available treatments.
(ii) Spread awareness and engage in community based research on various environmental based, lifestyle based, genetic diseases and common sexually transmitted infections and reproductive health.
Bio-Services welcome students, researchers, scientists, medical practitioners, non government organizations and people across the nation to connect with us as volunteers, philanthropists or advocates. We are involved in conducting public health awareness workshops in schools, educational institutions, universities, hospitals and corporate setups through various public engagement programmes.
