As the father of two boys, visiting hospitals and health clinics in the developing world, and seeing kids struggling to make it to the next day, is always difficult. But when I met with Dr. Julius and Dr. Asha at Hrudayalaya Hospital as part of the UN Foundaton Board meeting in Bangalore, I was instead filled with hope. They are part of Hrudayalaya’s innovative effort to dramatically expand access to affordable pediatric heart surgery to kids throughout India. The doctors also reminded me that India has broken the transmission of the wild polio virus, but that the battle against polio in India will continue for years. The visit brought home the importance of the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign, and made me glad that Dr. Julius and Dr. Asha are on the frontlines of health care in India.
