Haryana-based e-commerce healthcare company 1mg launched a dengue awareness campaign on Friday from the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in Delhi in an effort to strengthen the fight against the disease, which is taking a toll on the country predominantly due to unhygienic condition and lack of proper medicines.
“We hope this event would surely help us to connect with our customers and help them to prioritise their health and try new options provided to them over traditional ways of procuring medicines and prescribed drugs,” said 1mg co-founders Prashant Tandon and Gaurav Agarwal.
They added that the sole idea of the campaign is to promote awareness among people to take the initiative about their wellness. “Getting proper tests done and taking a prescribed medication can be a definite step in eradicating the roots of the spreading disease.”
1mg also distributed health cards to support good health. Using these health cards, users can order medicine instantly over the toll-free number 1800 2122 323. Additionally, they can also save 20 per cent on medicines and get a discount of up to 40 per cent on lab tests including tests for dengue and chikungunya.
