Extending Quality Care Across Economic Boundaries

Developing cost-effective healthcare solutions is a global challenge, and of paramount importance to long-term economic stability. India faces specific challenges in delivering care to the majority of its population, which lives in rural or informal communities with poor public health facilities, creating a healthcare environment characterized by very high demand and low margins. In many communities, health workers with little formal training and equipment are the front-line of care.

The Tata Center is developing innovative technologies, policies, and business models that can support quality care for large numbers of people with limited resources. These solutions will aid India and have implications for reducing the barriers to care throughout the developed world.
