Affordable Health for All- AHFA
Explain your idea in details:
The main objective of this idea is health inclusion for all. Till now, most of the people from rural areas, the rurban poor are on the sidelines health- wise. The reason being affordability of health services. Mostly, these people are financially weak and cannot afford quality health services. With this idea, we plan to bring health inclusion at affordable prices for all. The activities associated would include provision of RFID tags (wristbands) to people. Prior to it, people will be registered and a database will be created which will have vital health and personal information such as name, age, sex, locality, blood group, medical condition, etc. This information will be fed into the central system and then people will be screened. From the central system, this information, via a software, will be fed into the RFID readers. These RFID readers will encode and decode the information saved in the tags. Once the information about the people is at hand, they can be specifically treated for their ailments. The advantages would be that everything will be planned and in order. So therell be no more queues in hospitals and more people will have access to better medical facilities. Innovation involved is bringing the RFID technology at affordable rates for everyone and affordable health inclusion for all- everyone under the health inclusion umbrella. The idea is to increase the outreach of RFID technology for the benefit of common masses so that they can lead better lives.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
A sound mind lives in a sound body. For an individual, good health and well- being form the very base for them being able to be the agents of change. A healthy society always leads to prosperity. This idea will have a tremendous impact on sustainable development. Not only this idea will help people in maintaining their health and well- being, but will also lead to a waterfall effect for a host of other activities. Initially, we plan to run a pilot project based upon this idea in a rural set- up say a community clinic. The next step would be getting all the village people get registered and database creation. Then the next steps can follow. The measures to evaluate success would be to have all villages under the health inclusion umbrella, by far and large, all strata.
Plans for implementation and sustainability

After the software is developed, it'll be transferred to the readers and via the readers, information will be recorded and encoded on the tags. We'll be starting with the local community health centers. Awareness programs/ campaigns will be run so as to educate the doctors and nurses about our idea. Sustainability arises from the fact of the acceptance of the idea. We'll ensure that our idea is welcomed by everyone in the trial stage itself.
