Focus area

Healthcare and Life Science

Despite good health being a fundamental right in India, it is not accessible to everyone for various reasons. Rising costs coupled with a constrained resource environment have led to many patients not receiving the care that they need. However, the emergence of technology which make possible the prevention, detection and periodical maintenance of care have the potential to transform modern healthcare. By placing the treatment as close to the patient as possible technology can help guide accuracy in diagnosis, help monitor correct protocol administration as well as enable compliance when treated. 

The Indian disease burden is shifting from communicable diseases to non-communicable diseases (NCDs). In absolute numbers, Indians contribute more than 2.7 million CVD cases, 62.4 million diabetes, 1.5 million strokes, 30 million chronic respiratory diseases and 0.95 million incident cancer cases to the global NCD problem every year. Innovative technologies emerging from the Indian and Swedish innovation ecosystem have the potential to address these challenges and revolutionise the treatment of NCDs for the masses. 

To address these issues within healthcare, in 2009 India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Sweden’s Ministry of Health and Social Affairs signed an MoU to promote bilateral cooperation in Healthcare and Public Health. The MoU has a focus on 12 areas of health important to India and Sweden, ranging from maternal and child health to antibiotic resistance.

UNNATI aims to bring together industry partners, innovative SME’s and leading academia, to foster market-oriented innovations within healthcare, diagnostics, med-tech, IoT, AI, and patient management in the areas of non-communicable diseases (such as cardio-vascular, cancer, diabetes).
