WISH Foundation Upgrading the quality of healthcare services through technology and device innovation

India’s relatively high maternal mortality rate is a consequence of low access to affordable and high-quality healthcare. As primary health facilities are often far away and costly, many at-risk patients avoid seeking early medical attention. In addition, the care received may be compromised by the facility’s infrastructure, equipment and human capabilities. Founded in 2014, the Wadhwani Institute for Sustainable Healthcare, or WISH Foundation, is a non-profit organization that steps in to operate and upgrade primary health centers through process improvement and digital innovation. By working closely with state governments, WISH improves the quality of care and cost effectiveness in the public healthcare system to benefit both rural and urban communities.
