Mrs Khushbu Soni from Barmer, Rajasthan, another co-founder of this app said, "There are lot of misconception on Periods (menstruation cycle) amongst women, often they don't care of hygiene during periods. This app even take care of such issue and there is a special window called "Periods tracker" on this app.
Dr Babu Lal Soni, Maxillofacial Surgeon, an alumnus of AIIMS, Ideate and consultant of SwasthU said, "this app is not only a virtual Hospital, but we see it as a new revolution in Health Sector. In India, owing to large population and disproportionate distribution of healthcare services and Infrastructure. Some report suggests 74 percent of Doctors are in urban areas that service the 28 percent of the population, existing health could not meet all desired goal. He added, limited healthcare care awareness and education and current pandemic healthcare challenges is dire need of such platform. Hence, all these problems stimulates us to find the possible solution- SwasthU."
