From Micro-Health Insurance to Digital Rural Medicine

Some of these social healthcare innovations respond to governmental policy and funding and others go around them. Many of them are looking to technology as some sort of perhaps not "savior" but way to increase outcomes and foster neoliberal self-management of individuals' bodies.

Here are a few examples. iKure, a social enterprise based in India, is affiliated with the Intellecap Impact Investment Network (that is how it received its funding) and attempts to provide healthcare to rural communities through technological means. In Pakistan, Naya Jeevan operates a micro-health insurance scheme that attempts to respond to the less than 3% of the government's spending that is reserved for healthcare. From micro-health insurance to digital rural medicine, the impacts from these social healthcare innovations will take a number of years to measure.
