Karma Primary Healthcare is an impact-driven, technology–enabled start-up working to make primary healthcare more accessible, equitable, integrated and evidence-based. It works on a home grown, state-of-the-art technology platform to provide comprehensive healthcare services spanning the broad spectrum of healthcare to rural/semi-urban communities around India.
Karma Primary Healthcare operates nurse-assisted digital clinics supported by qualified doctors, diagnostics and referral services in the underserved parts of the country. It focusses on primary healthcare and COVID-19 support services in rural and urban areas primarily for the most vulnerable sections of the population and provides access to affordable and quality healthcare services. Specifically, this includes increasing awareness regarding COVID vaccination, door-to-door digital consultations by doctors for patients, distribution of critical medical devices for COVID-19 treatment, counselling, etc. It is compliant with existing NDHM and GoI guidelines for teleconsultation.
Over the next 6 months, financial support secured from USAID’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will enable Karma Primary Healthcare to expand the complete continuum of COVID-19 care and awareness, most urgently regarding vaccination in rural areas where there is still a stigma attached to immunization.
