A net contributor to the world’s healthcare workforce, South Asia struggles to retain its clinically-trained talent - with the lure of foreign healthcare systems a major factor. With major economies in the region spending as little as 2% of GDP on healthcare the quality and availability or services is mixed. However this challenging environment is translating into strong entrepreneurial activity, with the 2022 South Asia Health Tech 100 featuring a range of innovative and fast-growth organizations.
