Meet the New Innovators: Rural Healthcare Foundation

At our recent Annual Forum, we had the chance to highlight our newest cohort of innovators, who joined our network earlier this year.

One of these innovators is Rural Health Care Foundation, a non-profit chain of primary healthcare centers in rural India, where patients pay about 60 rupees (equivalent to 1 USD) for a clinic visit and weeklong supply of medicine.

Check out this video to learn more about the story and the people behind Rural Health Care Foundation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhB4EbFmnso

You can also head to the Harvard Business Publishing website, where there is a case study focused on Rural Health Care Foundation’s model, road to scale, and partnerships: https://cb.hbsp.harvard.edu/cbmp/product/IMB435-PDF-ENG

 With the addition of Rural Health Care Foundation and the other eleven organizations in our newest cohort, our network has grown to 67 innovators across the globe.
