Primary Healthcare

Welcome to the Dynamic Database of Indiaʼs Primary Health Care Landscape

The COVID pandemic has shown us the urgent need for strong primary health care models and innovations. Many ambitious and impactful innovations and models are left undocumented, not studied or published. This diminishes the opportunity to learn, replicate and hopefully scale. This database of innovations and comprehensive primary healthcare models aims to highlight these solutions. It will be a living document that evolves with India's primary health care landscape.

198 Impact Evaluations
27 Reviews
9 Case Studies
68 Models

Why is this database important?

Swasti is a Health Catalyst whose mission is to support and enable vulnerable peoples and communities, to have and make the right choices to lead healthy lives. This also means supporting change agents to embody this mission, and thus reach more communities together.

As we researched and built this database, we learnt invaluable lessons and stories that are worth sharing with the global health community at large. The focus of these lessons here is to show what works where, how, why, and towards what. The goal is to inspire readers to take these learnings, and their own, from these stories to implement in their own practice and communities.

The solutions are presented in any one of the 4 formats:

  • Impact evaluations are focused on a single intervention and its impact
  • Reviews - narrative reviews, systematic reviews
  • Models are comprehensive primary healthcare models for identified communities
  • Case stories created from interviews of creators of promising PHC models and innovations from the field
