GE Healthcare

2011

Overview

The goal of GE Healthcare’s Rural Health Initiative is to provide low-cost, appropriate diagnostic technology in rural areas of developing countries to improve clinical efficacy and tangibly improve public health outcomes. The student team assessed the entrepreneurial models already in practice with GE Healthcare’s Bangladesh and Indonesian partners, explored the potential for transference of lessons learned from other business models that could fund and scale these rural health entrepreneurship models. In 2010, a student MAP team collaborated with GE Healthcare in India and Bangladesh to propose a variety of recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of the design, implementation, and outcomes of the piloting process for the Rural Health Initiative.
