The m-Shakti App:
The Indian Cancer Society brings to you a revolution in womens healthcare the m-Shakti app. Useful for women everywhere, the app is an easy-to-understand, at-home guide that demystifies breast and cervical cancer illnesses that plague women of reproductive age commonly, but are seldom understood well.
Designed with the aim to simplify and educate, m-Shakti incorporates intuitive and interactive design, simple explanations and comes with an optional voiceover. Currently, it is available in Hindi, with an English version in the offing. m-Shakti is named after its eponymous mascot, Shakti didi, who was created to humanise the app experience. She is a friend, guide and mentor who handholds the user through every bit of information that includes signs, risks, preventive measures, proactive measures and self-examinations. A colour-coding of pink and teal, shades that universally represent breast and cervical cancer, has been adopted to visually distinguish the cancers.
As an NGO that values the community over anything else, we would love your feedback. You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
