This project provides a group of villages with access to healthcare through a primary care outpatient clinic in order to improve health outcomes and economic productivity.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
We are addressing the problem of inadequate healthcare access for the poor and marginalized people of villages in the Medak district of rural Andhra Pradesh, India. Our solution offers them a geographically and socioeconomically accessible healthcare clinic that is staffed by a fully licensed doctor that will also improve the local economy through improved worker productivity and reliability. We are planning to further develop partnerships with local employers to make this sustainably funded.
How will this project solve this problem?
We provide healthcare to villagers in an area with no other healthcare access and where health outcomes are so poor that over 100 children out of every 1000 die before the age of five. We also seek to explore and implement sustainable funding models.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will directly provide healthcare to 800-1000 people and will also demonstrate the economic value of having healthcare access in rural India. Through our research, we hope to influence new policy that can impact all of rural India.
