Description of Innovation

Most parts of rural India lack any form of quality healthcare providers; patients either go without or rely on informal providers. Specifically, there is a large unmet need for family planning and primary care services among rural populations.

WHP combines existing social and economic infrastructure with the latest advances in communication, diagnostic and medical technology to establish a large scale, cost-effective health service network and create a viable market for health care services among the most vulnerable populations.

WHP now serves approximately 3.2 million people in 1,000 villages, through 1,800 franchise providers. The organization hopes to expand their operations into additional countries in the coming years.
