Dr. Anmolika Watal, Managing Director and Consultant of Afsaana Health and Wellness Hub and a PhD Candidate in Public Health from IIHMR University, founded Afsaana Health and Wellness Hub.
Her effort is primarily geared on achieving one of our nation's Sustainable Development Goals, which is to provide "HEALTH FOR ALL," and it consolidates all of the following services under a single roof and umbrella: Consultation for career counselling (including child and adolescent health), relationship counselling (including family planning and health education), techniques for financial independence by skilling in financial management counselling (helping build your own dream start up), and overall physical and mental health and fitness (using various traditional and conventional techniques). In addition to these, she provides services of hospital accreditation for NABH, JCI, and other organisations.
The story of this effort began in 2018 on Facebook as a platform for motivation and the dissemination of optimism. Very quickly, the reach extended dramatically, and it inspired many individuals from all over the world. Later, it evolved into a platform for counselling during the COVID-19 pandemic. Taking into account the pandemic-like situations, it has been decided to provide access to all of these services through teleconsultation. This not only allows patients the flexibility to access the services from the comfort of their own homes, but it also helps patients overcome their hesitation in approaching for any mental health-related concerns, which are still stigmatised in our society. Pandemic was one of these challenges, and Dr. Anmolika Watal, who is both a medical professional and an academician, has diligently and dedicatedly served in the healthcare sector, teaching facilities, and hospitals to cater not only to medical, administrative, and academic roles, but she has also personally provided mental and emotional support to patients, professionals, friends, family, and her students to help them remain strong during and after treatment or in any field of life. During her time at IIM Bangalore's Entrepreneurship Course, her commitment led to the conception of the idea that would become the Afsaana Health and Wellness Hub. She has worked in this industry for more than eight years and has gained a wealth of experience during that time. Both in her professional and personal life, she has counselled a variety of patients and cases that required basic health related advice, ranging from successfully treating diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, PCOD, hyperthyroidism, PTSD, and other psychological problems through the implementation of lifestyle modification techniques. As part of her educational journey, she has persevered to learn and become an Internationally Certified Career coach. As a result, she has guided a great number of students in the appropriate way when it comes to selecting their educational routes. She has a lot of experience in Hospital Quality Management, and she has used that to successfully get NABH certification for many hospitals. To a large extent, her primary objective is to continue to offer the highest quality of services that can assist individuals in maintaining their health and physical fitness in such a way as to make a joint contribution to the "Healthy Nation Development" initiative. This is because both education and medical care are fundamental civil liberties. Only a person who is well in all aspects—physically, psychologically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually—is capable of serving as a leader in the process of constructing our nation as a whole. She has triumphed over adversity despite the challenges she has faced throughout her life, and now she wants to use her skill set and expertise to make a positive contribution to the growth and development of our Motherland.
