“The PHC Tech Challenge is being launched at an opportune moment because innovation in medical technologies is a constant need to meet the challenges of primary health care in India. Importantly, enhancing the primary health care system is a priority for the government in ensuring India’s continuing progress to meet the Sustainable Development Goal on health and well-being for all. Quality, accessibility, and affordability of primary health care services in India is complex and it is rapidly being addressed by the National Health Agency and the National Digital Health Mission. The PHC Tech Challenge is a useful addition to these efforts.”
