USAID has awarded the annual ‘Inclusive Health Access Award’ to Indian NGO Piramal Swasthya in recognition of its efforts to provide comprehensive primary healthcare through community outreach programmes and telemedicine services to the unserved and underserved sections of the society.
Hyderabad-based Piramal Swasthya is one of the five worldwide social insurance NGOs that were granted by USAID for creating answers for streamline wellbeing frameworks so individuals get the medicinal services they need in manners they trust without paying excessively or travel excessively far.
The different awardees are mDoc Healthcare from sub-Saharan Africa, INFIUSS and GIC Space from Cameroon, and JokkoSante from Senegal, a media discharge said on Sunday. The five victors from 400 applications crosswise over 68 nations got a USD 30,000 award from USAID’s Innovation Incentive Award Authority.
Vishal Phanse, CEO, Piramal Swasthya, received the award from USAID at the “locally leading the way to universal health care” event on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly in New York last month.
“Piramal Swasthya is poised to transform India’s most pressing healthcare needs and help India achieve a Maternal Mortality Rate of 70,” he said.
“Over the last decade, Piramal Swasthya has successfully implemented several primary healthcare services and initiatives for the marginalised sections of society, especially in remote and inaccessible geographies across the country,” said Swati Piramal, vice chairperson, Piramal Group.
“At Piramal Swasthya, we are committed to delivering sustainable, scalable, replicable and affordable primary healthcare solutions to unserved and underserved sections of society,” she said.
