Description of Innovation

70% of India’s population lives in peri-urban and rural areas. However, about 80% of health care facilities are located in urban areas. Faced with long distances to travel and high cost for services many go without health care.

Vaatsalya has created an efficient, franchise network model that specializes in a specific and limited set of health services that are in high demand in each local community. Through right skilling the clinical workforce and centralizing administration and management costs across the network, Vaatsalya drives costs down.
