Jacksonville, FL (June 7, 2017) Continuwell, a telehealth software and services company, has partnered with Rethreaded to provide a nurse call line free to their employees. Rethreaded is a nonprofit social entrepreneurship that is breaking the cycle of the exploitation of women by offering viable and creative work to those affected by the sex trade industry (i.e. prostitution, drug addiction and human trafficking.) Rethreaded now has a unique, dedicated phone number that employees can call if they have a medical symptom or question, but does not function as a crisis hotline.
This partnership directly aligns with the Continuwell mission to better the lives of all people by making healthcare accessible and affordable for businesses, organizations, and individuals. Continuwell CEO Charu Raheja, PhD states, “Continuwell is proud to partner with Rethreaded in bringing healing and wellness to those affected by the sex trade industry with free 24/7 nurse telemedicine.”
Human trafficking is a $32 billion a year industry and a form of slavery that subjects women, children, and men to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. About 90% of women want to leave the sex industry, but do not have access to jobs. Rethreaded has directly helped 20 women locally by providing jobs in the Jacksonville, Florida area. Rethreaded also has a global impact through their import company, positively affecting over 2,000 women around the world.
Rethreaded founder and president, Kristin Keen said, “Providing our employees with additional health resources that can contribute to their overall wellbeing is core to our mission. We are so thankful to Continuwell for using their company and resources for good.”
Continuwell plans to additionally offer their customizable telehealth app to Rethreaded in the future. This app will provide employees with easier access to their Continuwell services, as well as other wellness resources that are available for Rethreaded employees.

Continuwell partners with telemedicine companies, wellness companies, self-insured companies, brokers, and PEOs to add value to existing services by providing a unique blend of technology and telehealth services.

Rethreaded is a social entrepreneurship that is helping to break the cycle of the sex trade by offering viable and creative work to those who were affected by the sex trade but have since found freedom from it. Executive Director Kristin Keen lived and worked for five years in Kolkata, India where she encountered the life-stealing effects of the sex trade on a daily basis. Rethreaded has positively impacted the lives of over 2,200 women around the world by “upcycling” donated t-shirts into beautiful original creations while also selling products crafted by these women. Kristin provides specialized training for a vulnerable population that comes from severe trauma and a limited work history. She and her team show these impacted employees that retail is a viable business and they can build a career from their work experience at Rethreaded.
