GE Healthcare has formed a partnership with Grameen Health, an affiliate of microfinancing organization Grameen Bank of Bangladesh, to improve healthcare in the developing world.
GE and Grameen will work together to identify sustainable models for healthcare delivery in developing countries, according to GE of Chalfont St. Giles, U.K. They will jointly evaluate ways to improve Grameen Health's existing healthcare delivery systems and primary care clinics in rural Bangladesh.
In the next year, GE and Grameen will also identify appropriate business models that can ultimately be replicated in other countries, GE said. In addition, GE said it will test delivery of ultrasound capability in rural clinics for early detection of abnormalities, especially in the context of maternal care.
