Tata Trusts has launched an 'Impact Lab' at IIT Delhi in partnership with health innovation player PATH for healthcare solutions in areas such as maternal and child health, nutrition and diagnostics for chronic and infectious diseases, among others.
To start with, the lab will focus on communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, among others as also the major healthcare issues in India. The 'Impact Lab' will source solutions in chosen areas to improve healthcare of poor and resource challenged communities.
The collaboration between the two will mobilise about $10 million to run the entire ecosystem. Together Tata Trusts and PATH are building a healthcare Iab which will become a place in the country where innovators can come with their ideas and innovation, test them and build better products and solutions out of those.
The ideas and innovations will be taken to the market, to public health professionals, government, NGOs and to everybody who has to do with India's public health problems.
