How can we provide more equitable and accessible healthcare solutions tailored for Emerging Markets?

A large proportion of the APAC population reside in emerging countries and cities (e.g. India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, etc.). These markets are brimming with underserved communities that require new and innovative, value engineered products and/or digital solutions that are affordable and easy to deploy in the absence of a full healthcare infrastructure with limited patient awareness and diagnosis pathways.
