COVID-19 forced India to prioritize lives over livelihoods.

The largest working-age population in the world was locked down and healthcare infrastructures
struggled under the burden of the pandemic.

71% of India's population lives in rural areas, but only 34% of doctors practice there.

Varying by region, anywhere between 25% and 75% of these 'doctors' may not have any formal qualification at all.

Without a sustainable solution...

preventable diseases will continue to spread
chronic ailments will remain untreated
pandemics like COVID-19 will easily take root
Telemedicine presents the cheapest and fastest way to bridge this gap by connecting specialised medical expertise to remote corners of the country. It has the potential to create new livelihoods in every part of India.

The Challenge

For telemedicine to succeed in low resource settings, like remote areas with low technology penetration and low skill availability, innovation in last-mile delivery is the need of the hour..
Upjeevika invites social entrepreneurs from across India, who either have an early stage venture or an idea with a proof of concept, to propose solutions that can impact thousands of livelihoods while strengthening the healthcare backbone of the country.
