Why Social Enterprise?
As India becomes a middle-income country, consumers’ health needs remain the same while their willingness and ability to pay for quality products and services rises. Donor expectations shift in tandem to focus on sustainability. A social enterprise approach in India can support positive social outcomes more sustainably than grants alone and provides an opportunity to invest in relationships that stimulate the market to achieve health impact at scale while allowing government and donor subsidy to be more effectively targeted.
Historically, PSI has always taken an enterprise-style approach to global health challenges, coupling donor funding with marketing, the use of branded products and consumer insights from the private sector. Now, PSI India Private Limited (PSI IPL) is leveraging this approach in markets that can support social enterprises to fulfill donor expectations for more sustainable approaches. PSI IPL uses sound marketing and business discipline in its social enterprises to ensure the long-term viability of consumer-powered healthcare by balancing the pursuit of social impact and financial self-reliance.
