IiH innovator Swasth Foundation answered the call to combat COVID-19 by circulating verified information via messages, calls, and other social media tools to residents of Mumbai's urban slums. During the past two months, the organization has been immersed in pivoting its model to provide Covid-19 relief. As a result of this effort, Swasth has directly supported more than 25,000 families in obtaining the essentials—food, medical care and health information. The organization has supplied PPE for healthcare providers working in 20 organizations. Swasth has provided coronavirus-related education to more than 80,000 individuals via broad-based online and phone engagement.
Founded in 2009, Swasth is a non-profit social enterprise committed to improving the well-being of the poor by providing a range of affordable and high-quality primary-preventive health services. In the current atmosphere of anxiety and chaos caused by misinformation, Swasth is looking for volunteers to call patients and talk with them about their doubts and experiences with the aim of supplying information and understanding what support they need.
