Editor's introduction (by Christina Starr): The demand for outpatient healthcare is ballooning throughout the developing world as populations and incomes grow. In response to this trend, innovative entrepreneurs in India and Africa have been launching low-cost clinic chains and franchises delivering high quality primary care services.
From October 18-21, the CHMI network launched the new Primary Care Learning Collaborative, the first collaboritive of its kind to focus on market-based primary care, to address challenges to rapid growth and create an opportunity for knowledge sharing between entrepreneurs in key emerging economies. This is Trevor's reflection on the experience of the launch in New Dehli, India.
