Disha Didi is IDF’s AI-powered chatbot to provide quick, credible information, respond to individual queries on sexual and reproductive health and COVID-19, and create linkages to government health facilities. Developed using the HCD methodology, Disha Didi uses Hindi and has been designed keeping in mind needs of young women in rural communities – it also includes an option to connect to a human counsellor for more in-depth engagement and information. The chatbot is backed by our on-ground youth leaders to ensure access to safe, respectful services for women as required.
