Dimagi and Health Information Technology in India

May 30, 2007

From the Pacific Health Summit 2007 Challenge in Seattle, Washington. 

Summary
India’s population is 1.1 billion and growing. Significant, consistent growth of the Indian economy
over the last decade has made it the fourth largest economy in the world, with a GDP of $4 trillion
in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP). Furthermore, India is the world’s leading destination for
information technology and related services. Nevertheless, it is still a low-income country, and while
pockets of extraordinary innovation exist, its national HIT infrastructure and basic infrastructure
continues to lag.
