Udoy: Empowering Factory Workers

Rapid development in the manufacturing industry often poses health risks and causes occupational hazards to the workers, if they are denied their basic healthcare rights due to long work-hour, deadline-based productivity, and ignorance. The lack of awareness and unavailability of affordable and quality services for factory workers often cause delays in health seeking. The delay can happen from both employer and employee sides. Due to lack in proper health education, factory workers often ignore seeking available healthcare and precautions which can cause critical diseases due to their job nature.

Addressing the gap, Udoy brings in need-based health camps and health education services for factory workers and their families. It aims at ensuring healthcare rights of factory workers through providing easy access to doctor consultation, safe medication, quality diagnostic facilities and health education. The project also advocates for integrating healthcare support for industry workers within the factory.
