Low Cost Efficient Health Care: A Sustainable Model
Speaker: Dr. Alan Robin, Scholar-in-Residence, University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center; Associate Professorship Ophthalmology/International Health, Johns Hopkins University; Clinical Professor, University of Maryland.
In a developing country, the government alone often cannot meet the health needs of all due to challenges like population growth, inadequate infrastructure, low per capita income, diseases in epidemic proportions, and illiteracy. Aravind Eye Care System provides an alternate healthcare model that supplements the efforts of the government while also financially sustainable. Dr. Alan Robin discussed the low-cost, sustainable model at Aravind Eye Care.
