A new initiative by the country’s largest social welfare organization has come under fire for asking women to take their shoes off for the first time when visiting a clinic.
The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) on Monday launched a campaign titled “A Woman’s Journey To Be Free From Down Syndrome.”
The initiative, which is being called “A Journey To Make A Difference,” is designed to inspire women to get tested for the syndrome and learn how to live without the condition.
NDSS officials say they want to educate women about the disease so that they can start their own families and become more active.
The campaign will also encourage women to ask their doctors if they can get tested.
NDDS officials say women should start the process of seeking out their genetic markers as early as possible to ensure that they are free from the condition when they do start families.

In the NDSS’ campaign, it states, “You’re free to choose what you want to do, but you’re still in a constant state of uncertainty.
Do you want your life to be defined by you?
Or do you want it to be guided by others?”
In its campaign, the NDDS also states that people should also be willing to share their experiences of their experience with the group, saying, “We want to bring about an environment in which all can be heard and have a say.”
NDSS president Pratap Tiwari, however, said the NDPS would not encourage women and girls to be test positive for the disease because of the stigma associated with it.
“The stigma that is attached to it is the reason why it is difficult to get a diagnosis,” Tiwary told the Hindustan Times in a statement.
“If you are not tested, you will continue to be a risk to yourself and your family.
There is no room for anyone who is in the process.
It is not right for people to be put in a position where they have to give up their health and safety.”
The NDSS also said that women who opt out of testing for the condition, would be responsible for themselves financially.
The initiative will be available on Indias website for free.
