Introduction
Dr. Devi Shetty is a serial social entrepreneur who has enabled millions of low-income people to access quality health care. He is currently establishing the foundations to realize the grandest of his visions: “health cities” that will transform the way health care is delivered and accessed in India and other developing countries. Eventually, he will be remembered not for the thousands of babies’ lives he saved but for severing that unfortunate umbilical cord linking quality health care to affluence.
