Maya Apa, an android-based mobile app that allows users to post anonymous questions on health, legal and psychosocial issues to experts, will be available on Google Playstore starting today. 

The platform is available in both English and Bangla, where a team of doctors, lawyers and psychosocial counsellors will respond in the language preferred by the asker within 48 hours of the query.

Brac and jointly launched the app as a first ever help service app for women in Bangladesh. It is designed, developed, and implemented by female engineers, doctors, and entrepreneurs, Brac said in a statement yesterday.

Maya Apa is based on the hugely successful web application 'Maya Apa Ki Bole' on the website, the first anonymous question and answer platform in the country, Brac said. With the service developed for basic smartphones, the Brac Maya team is aiming to reach women and girls in both urban and rural areas.

“This app will not only create greater access to information and services for women all over the country, but also a nationwide consensus for a supportive society,” said Sheepa Hafiza, Brac's gender, justice and diversity director.
