India’s healthcare scenario has seen significant improvements and innovations in the past few years along various dimensions. This includes the expanding network of private healthcare providers, a competitive pharmaceutical industry as well as dynamic health insurance products.
These benefits have been largely accessible and affordable only to the high-income segments until now. Our aim is to extend these benefits to the low-income segments and create a holistic health system that enables harmony between dignity for patients and opportunities for providers.
The core of Swasth Foundation has remained the same, but the organisation’s services have transitioned in the last few years. Through our experimental projects in the field of health insurance in partnership with ‘Swayam Shikshan Prayog’ in Maharashtra (supported by the International Labour Organisation), the ‘Haryana Construction Workers and Other Workers Welfare Board’ as well as with the Government of Delhi, we learnt the value of primary healthcare service delivery. This led us to establish the Swasth India Medical Centers to address the challenge of impoverishment among low-income segments due to health shocks.
Health and joy for all
