Resolving A Vital Need
Life has been and continues to be,
extremely tough for the rural poor. Healthcare outreach is grossly
inadequate. Clinics are far away from most villages (especially smaller ones), ill-equipped and many times not even manned by authorised professionals. To add to the misery, the staff could be very
arrogant, curt or rude.
Further, in case one needs to call for an ambulance, it
is either unavailable or reaches after a long delay.
To top that all, the
ambulance may be ill equipped and/or too large to drive through
narrow village tracks. All of this could lead to deterioration
in the patient's condition or even death.
We have a different kind of problem in
crowded cities. There are cases of patients who deteriorate or even die
in ambulances because of being stuck for hours in traffic jams.

basis, within walking distance

how do we provide
fully operational, 24/7 ambulance services
that reach the patient within 15 minutes
of being called?! How
do we run this with limited funds and yet keep the
affordable? And lastly, how do we
make this system
scalable, nation wide?
today's world, there is no way to resolve this
challenge, especially with financial restraints.

thinking. Four years of hard work led to a solution.
