On March 11-12, hundreds of global health innovators from across India gathered in New Delhi, Manipal, Bengaluru, Mumbai and Bhubaneswar for CAMTech-X: Jugaadathon to help expand healthcare access for India's urban poor. The event marked the first time that CAMTech, in partnership with Lattice Innovations and with sponsorship support from GE Healthcare, took its successful model of medtech hack-a-thons and exponentially expanded its reach and impact across India.
From maternal and newborn health to air pollution, access to clean water, diabetes, and decentralized healthcare systems, participants pitched over 250 clinical challenges and formed 92 teams.
