Summary

The Indian healthcare system ranks 112/191 countries. Rural areas are especially disadvantaged, with limited state-run infrastructure in place. Mann Deshi is aiming to provide quality healthcare services to last mile women at subsidized rates, through our health center and other services. This funding will go towards covering costs of transportation for patients, maintenance of/investment in new/existing facilities & medical equipment, HR costs & operating costs (inc diagnostic supplies).

Challenge

In rural India, over 25% of annual income is spent on healthcare. For centuries, we have been unable to screen and diagnose rural women due to limited accessibility to services. As a result CVDs account for 17.7 million deaths. Another major hurdle is being born female, with women being more vulnerable to disease. Also socio-economic backwardness has acted as a barrier for women, with 63% of women depending on men, in terms of money and transport, to seek healthcare.

Solution

Since there are currently no public CT scans and pathology lab services available for under privileged communities Mann Deshi's Healthcare center will play a vital role in providing access to affordable healthcare services. Our doorstep healthcare model will help reduce women's reliance on men to access healthcare services. Additionally, the introduction of a health savings tools is encoring women to save for their health, making them less economically vulnerable if they are to fall ill.

Long-Term Impact

Half a million people spend $60 million on primary healthcare, Mann Deshi's aim is to half that. By improving primary healthcare we hope to reduce the need for secondary and tertiary services, including hospitalization. This will be done through increasing disease detection, timely treatment of illness, a reduction in costs spent on primary healthcare services and increase in healthcare and wellbeing awareness.
