COVID-related deaths in India, as of October 2020, occurred due to lack of last mile connectivity [2]

The COVID19 pandemic has brought to the surface the various problems faced by the extremely understaffed and overburdened healthcare ecosystem in India. Despite having over 1 million registered doctors and countless healthcare institutions in India, there is a large access gap that needs to be filled to address the needs of the ever growing and ever-expanding population. Coupled with that, there is also a widespread problem of last mile access which needs to be addressed to provide basic healthcare access to all. A major chunk of deaths in India occurs due to the lack of last mile access to basic healthcare that can potentially save millions. Bridging last mile delivery supply is the key problem area that needs to be addressed.

Capacity Building and Skilling of healthcare workers

Skill Tree Consulting aims to strengthen primary healthcare delivery and capacity building through short term courses for rural youth and women living in remote locations across India. These skills would be in more vocational spaces such as developing phlebotomists, diet assistants and telehealth service coordinators, supported by job placement at a local hospital/diagnostic chain. Following this, Skill Tree aims to instill a sense of entrepreneurship in the trained youth by encouraging them to start their own telehealth centres in their villages through a door to door diagnostic model. This way both last mile connectivity can be achieved as well as creating more healthcare related MSMEs across India.
