In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, women have emerged as one of the most vulnerable groups for not having access to necessary healthcare. On Women’s Day, it is important to turn the spotlight on women, who have also displayed exemplary resilience while braving challenges throughout the year.

According to a survey conducted by Reliance General Insurance, commissioned by research agency Nielsen, there has been a positive change in the way women approach health insurance, especially post-pandemic.
