If you’ve fallen behind on your annual check up, it’s a good time to catch up. The Nita Ambani-led Mumbai’s Sir H N Reliance Hospital has slashed prices for a special slew of annual check up packages for women for 8 days starting from 8-15 March to coincide with Women’s Day celebrations across the world.
Across the globe, women in positions of social, economic, cultural and political leadership are pledging to take action as champions of gender parity. #PledgeForParity and #IWD2016 are the two hashtags doing the rounds ahead of Women's day specials.
This year, the United Nations has chosen a woman gynecologist to kick off its interactive timeline of women in history to celebrate Women's Day that falls on 8 March. Recognized as one of the first female gynecologists, Agnodice is said to have courageously practiced medicine in Greece when women faced the death penalty for doing so. Eventually caught, she was vindicated and allowed to continue when patients came to her defense.
Announcing a raft of gynaecology specials, Reliance Hospital has slashed the price of mammograms, pap smear and related Well Women checks by almost 50%.

Oncology at Reliance Hospital
Oncology is a special focus area at Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre powered by close collaboration with University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center - widely acclaimed as the world's premier cancer centre. Nita Ambani, founder and chair of Reliance Foundation, is the first Indian and the second Asian to join the Board of MD Anderson.
Reliance Foundation Hospital focuses on the biggest killers of Indian populations – cancers of the breast, head and neck, gastrointestinal tract and genitourinary organs.
More than 1 million people from India are diagnosed with cancer each year, and it’s estimated that there’s only one oncologist to care for every 2,000 cancer patients. So that region especially needs increased levels of cancer care. MD Anderson experts have been working with Reliance Foundation to guide the development of a multidisciplinary cancer center at Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre in Mumbai.
