Sustainable and Effective Social Health Care: India's Social Entrepreneurs

Access to affordable, high-quality health care is a global challenge. India's health care burden illustrates that challenge in the extreme. However, remarkable pockets of excellence have emerged in an environment of large-scale needs: exceptional medical skills, high technology, and a culture of social entrepreneurism. Guy Ellena, Soma Raju MD and Krishna Reddy MD, Sachin Rao pose the provocative question of whether these success stories hold solutions for the growing health care issues we face in our own countries. They discuss with William A. Haseltine, MD.
