Bharti AXA ties up with Primero Skills to support healthcare workers amid COVID

New Delhi, Dec 13 (Agency) Bharti AXA Life Insurance on Saturday launched ‘GotYouCovered’ campaign, a special initiative to appreciate frontline healthcare workers who are striving to protect people from the COVID-19 pandemic. Observing the Universal Health Coverage Day, which is promoted by the World Health Organisation, and urges all nations to provide affordable and quality healthcare to citizens, the company aims at spreading awareness on the importance of protecting life and health against all uncertainties.

Bharti AXA Life Insurance has joined hands with Primero Skills & Training, a skill development organisation imparting free skills and training programmes to youth under the Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative of the Government of India, to support its healthcare workers by masking them against life and health risks during the ongoing COVID pandemic. The company will promote #GotYouCovered initiative and encourage people to acknowledge the efforts of frontline healthcare workers. With every share of this initiative on social media, Bharti AXA will extend one face mask to each healthcare worker or student registered with Primero Skills.

On the launch of the campaign, Bharti AXA Life Insurance MD and CEO Parag Raja said, “The COVID pandemic has claimed millions of lives and affected the health of people across the globe. On the positive note, this crisis has made people aware of the significance of life protection and health to sail through any financial hardships. The #GotYouCovered campaign educates people to build a safer and healthier future by investing in life and health insurance that protects all of us.’’ As part of the #GotYouCovered campaign, Primero Skills & Training distributed masks donated by Bharti AXA Life Insurance among the newly-trained healthcare workers and students at Delhi Police Station at Chitaranjan Park during a felicitation programme on the Universal Health Coverage Day.

“We are very happy to partner with Bharti AXA Life Insurance for its #GotYouCovered initiative. In fact, health and life risks during the COVID pandemic have been very challenging for all of us. Creating awareness about life protection with healthy initiatives is the need of the hour. ‘One Share-One Mask’ initiative is a positive gesture of acknowledgement and gratification which will motivate our youth and healthcare workers,’’ said Jayanta Das, Managing Partner and Director, Primero Skills and Training. With this campaign, Bharti AXA Life Insurance aims to engage with about a million of Indians on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn and create awareness about a secured and healthier future.
