We are a team of Indian women health professionals who saw the need for a reliable health information source in official Indian languages, and took up the challenge. Through this work, we also want to highlight oral health in the conversation about public health issues.
One of the primary focus areas at Sehat Funde is to build a platform for South Asian women health professionals to express opinions about Public Health Issues and create reliable health information content for our audience in India and other South Asian countries.
Why Oral Health?
Oral diseases are preventable, yet the burden of oral disease is high in most countries including India. Despite this burden, Oral Health doesn’t get talked about enough in the Public Health discourse. Oral Health Promotion is now on the priority list for most major health organizations, including the Government of India.
Talking about Oral Health is important for another reason- most oral diseases share risk factors with other chronic diseases that affect the body. Oral Health is vital to a person’s overall health.
How We Work
We follow a thorough process to create reliable content on a health topic. For each health topic, we put together a team of public health professionals and specialist doctors to compile and translate research from reliable sources. We make sure to seek feedback and review from other experts before, and from our audience after publishing content to keep improving.
Our mission is to create greater awareness about Oral Health and Public Health issues in India and other South Asian countries. We are currently self-funded, and are not promoting any drugs or commercial products.
