The Entrepreneur

Mahesh Kumar Saraf holds a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree. Prior to founding Ujjeewan Healthcare, he worked at the Praajak Developmeny Society managing and implementing child rights projects.

The Challenge

While 70% of the country lives in semi-urban and rural areas, approximately 80% of the healthcare infrastructure is only available in urban areas, which results in lack of information and minimal access to healthcare in rural areas.

The Innovation

Ujjeewan Healthcare is a medical services company that seeks to amend this imbalance through its programme Healthypariwar, by providing access to health care and trained doctors in rural India using tele-medicine. Healthypariwar has already been conducting tele-medicine consultations and will now extend its impact by setting up a number of units.

The Impact

This a cost effective method of health care delivery. More efficient and effective use of medical and technological resources since its initiation and an enhanced diagnostic and therapeutic quality of care.
