WorLD TeleheaLth Initiative - UH360 - PRECIOUS GEMS PARTNERSHIP

 World Telehealth Initiative (WTI), Urban Health 360 (UH360), and Precious Gems Charity (PGC) formed a partnership to equip the Opoji Comprehensive Health Centre with access to the Teledoc network and virtual care devices to enable philanthropic medical support for clinicians and patients via telehealth.

WTI will place two devices in the community: one at the Opoji Comprehensive Health Centre and one at a primary health care provider with associated networks in and around Opoji.

These devices are governed by the WTI-PGC-UH360 Partnership.

SAMAGRA PROJECT

The SAMAGRA project provides us with a unique opportunity to help shape the post-Covid urban health construct.

  • One that makes a compelling economic case for investing in urban health,
  • One that prioritizes those that are marginalized and the poor,
  • One that acknowledges and organizes markets to meet urban health needs,
  • Finally, one that leads to learnings that will transform and shape the global thinking on urban health.

URBAN HEALTH IN INDIA

  • Nine out of the ten most polluted cities in the world are in India and pollution accounted for 1.7 million preventable deaths in urban India.
  • The false dichotomy between urban and rural populations is no longer true.
  • Covid showed that urban systems are not as resilient as thought; millions lost their livelihoods and in turn access to healthcare.
  • India saw a decline of 60% to 80% in maternal and neo-natal health services, TB programs have slipped, and we have set back girls’ education by decades and given the important role women play in ensuring the health of the household this will have cascading effects that will last a long-time.
