Mumbai: Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi will throw his weight behind the `Save the Girl Child` initiative of NGO MedScapeIndia which works for the upliftment of women and children.

Radiologist and MedScapeIndia chairperson Sunita Dube met Satyarthi and Child Rights Commission member Yogesh Dube and discussed possible endeavours for the betterment of children and women, particularly their health and well being.

Dube invited Satyarthi for the `Save the Girl Child` campaign to be held Jan 24, to mark the Save the Girl Day.

Lauding the initiative, Satyarthi - whose Bachpan Bachao Andolan has grabbed attention worldwide - expressed happiness over taking part in the upcoming event in Mumbai.

Last year, the `Save the Girl Child` campaign was supported by Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Launched in 2011 by Aryan Medical and Educational Trust, MedScapeIndia creates a common virtual platform for the medical community to network, share and receive wide ranging reliable medical news and reports.

It is supported by 21 medical councils and associations, including the Maharashtra Medical Council, branches of physiotherapy, gynaecology and obstetrics, neurology, dental, ayurveda, homoeopathy and other major organisations.
