Bayer is one of the true pioneers in the field of women's health globally with almost nine decades of experience - from the launch of the first contraceptive pill, to addressing needs for diseases such as endometriosis in the gynecology field. We remain committed to the principles of sustainable development and continue to improve people’s quality of life with our products.
In the Indian society the woman is the pillar of the family and her well-being matters. However, currently, women’s health in the country remains a primary concern with lack of access to credible and reliable information and undiagnosed diseases in India. At Bayer, we believe that every woman should be empowered to make informed choices for her health to lead a better life. Through our initiative ‘Bayer For Women’, we aim to raise awareness and to bridge the information gap with digital solutions like our ‘Bare You Pain’ app that helps women to manage endometriosis and an online chatbot on Facebook called ‘Ask Tanu‘ that empowers women to make informed choices on contraception.
Our initiatives engage relevant stakeholders like healthcare practitioners, patients, media, NGO’s etc. to partner in raising awareness on women’s health. We also work closely the Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI) on various campaigns to develop disease management modules, educate healthcare professionals and raise public awareness on women’s health topics like contraception, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) management and endometriosis.
