From her light-flooded office in central Mumbai, Sweta Mangal oversees a fast-growing emergency transport company. In the last year, Ziqitza Healthcare Limited nearly doubled the number of ambulances it operates from 460 to more than 850. Many of these ambulances respond to emergency calls across three states through the government-funded hotline Dial 108.
The Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) profiles a total of 1,200 programs around the world and Mangal’s company is one of more than 40 health programs that reported having scaled up significantly over the past year.
