Innovators at Swasthagraha
When we are talking about Swasthagraha, health is our prime focus. Only a healthy India can be a wealthy India. The life expectancy of people has been slashed by huge numbers. Every age group is now prone to diseases which once affected only in later stages of life. Hence, the healthcare sector needs to be advanced before these diseases start taking tolls on the lives of the Indians. Swasthagraha witnessed some smart people from the Healthcare sector with their life-changing innovations aiding in making a Swasth Bharat. Our innovators have challenged these diseases with their smart innovations and development.
