“Welcome to India, the land of Gandhi and Mother Teresa. The country of 700 million mobile phones but not enough toilets. The country where starvation deaths do NOT make headlines, where slavery exists, where inspite of the economic boom and billions of $$ spent on health programs, the government has not been able to fulfill its promise to its citizens, of affordable, equitable, and accessible health care”, says Dr. Shelly Batra in her talk on Health for BOP. According to her, the solution lies in building effective partnerships with the private sector in order to achieve the health care goals in India. Read a brief summary of her talk here.
