This profile was prepared when Jorge Gronda was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Dr. Jorge Gronda is improving healthcare access in underserved, rural communities in Argentina by empowering individuals to take responsibility for their health while also giving doctors a viable means of serving these citizens. The new healthcare system he has created is self-sustaining and has successfully improved the health of those in the most need of care by specifically targeting bottom-of-the-pyramid patients.
