“SAMRIDH has played a pivotal role in propelling our business forward. Their unwavering funding support and expert business advisory have been instrumental in scaling our operations and achieving the desired health impact in underserved communities. Thanks to SAMRIDH's blended finance approach, we are now able to explore additional funding opportunities, enabling us to provide hassle-free access to quality and affordable healthcare to the vast rural population of half a billion Indians. Their guidance has been invaluable in our mission to make a significant difference in the lives of those who need it most.
SAMRIDH is supporting BigOHealth in getting commercial validation for the hyper-local distribution channel. The intervention will enable access to quality and affordable healthcare for 10,000 low to middle income rural patients in 100 villages of districts Motihari, Siwan, Gopalganj, Darbhanga, and West Champaran in Bihar, reducing their travel time and out-of-pocket expenses. SAMRIDH’s M&E team is closely coordinating with the BigOHealth team to establish efficient reporting systems for performance monitoring. This collaboration ensures accountability and effectiveness in providing quality and affordable healthcare access to underserved rural patients.
- Hundreds of millions of rural Indians lack essential medical attention due to inaccessible and unaffordable healthcare, leading to poor health, loss of livelihood, and preventable deaths
- This also pushes over 55 million people into poverty annually
- Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, home to 300+ million people, are among the poorest states in India, making healthcare unaffordable for many in the regions.
