Dr. Shetty’s innovation in driving down cardiac surgery costs at his Narayana Health Hospital chain has often been compared to Henry Ford’s automobile assembly lines. At 14,000 surgeries last year, Narayana Health has given thousands access to life saving procedures that were previously out of reach. Dr. Shetty’s low-cost model has inspired accessible healthcare around the world.

Harvard South Asia Institute (SAI) and King’s India Institute invite you to a program on The 1947 Partition of British India.
Join us in London for a special event to mark the 70th anniversary of the Partition of British India and launch SAI’s major research project in one of the most important global hubs for the South Asian diaspora and the city in which many of the decisions of 1947 were made.
We have much to learn from the Partition about the complexities of large-scale human migration and resettlements. Such lessons can inform current cross-border displacement and the corresponding growth of urban settlements and cities.
Panel discussion: 6:30-8:00pm
