Calla Health is a newly formed entity dedicated to improving the lives of women through technological innovations. Our vision is to sustainably improve access to women’s cancer prevention with a low-cost, hand-held, portable imaging devices, mHealth communication platforms, and an automated decision-making algorithm. Technologies under Calla Health are the Pocket Colposcope and the Callascope, which were developed to implement “see-and-treat” paradigms.
