RAD-AID commits to implementing a unique integrated mobile women's health outreach program for providing screening and referral for breast cancer, cervical cancer and osteoporosis. As a proof of concept for the importance of linking preventative health care with routine and follow-up medical care, the program will aim to reach over 7,000 underserved patients over five years in Northern India, in the Punjab province and City of Chandigarh. In addition to implementing a public-private collaboration to deploy a specially designed mobile clinic (van) and its technology (mammography and bone densitometry), RAD-AID will provide educational and program planning support to health workers and staff via on-site and on-line (internet-based) approaches optimizing health care quality and safety. The program is called "Asha Jyoti," meaning "Ray of Hope" in Hindi, to signify the use of advanced medical technology to bring hope and vital health service to underserved populations.
