What will India’s post-Covid recovery look like?

Covid-19 is devastating India and pushing the country’s healthcare infrastructure beyond its limits. The country is recording more than 400,000 cases daily. The crisis isn’t just a short-term one, but a wider challenge facing India, with pressures on perilous state finances, healthcare infrastructure and a continued economic downturn impacting jobs and livelihoods. This excellent article by Devi Shetty, cardiac surgeon and Chairman and Founder, Narayana Health, highlights some of the issues faced by the health sector in the coming months.

This Bridge India session looks at what the post-Covid India may look like, from the perspective of the economy, public healthcare, political economy as well as job creation. Please join our distinguished panel of experts for a wide-ranging discussion.

Please feel free to send through your questions for the panelists on email beforehand.
