Help  world record book of job creation  edit the greatest health-knowhow flights ever made - some dates approximate

B72 knowhow of oral rehydration shared by Calcutta Lab with Bangladesh grassroots womens networks- BRAC uses this to scale its fiirst grassroots network . Networkers of how to save infants lives with oral rehydration are turned into 50000+ viillage para-health servants advisng on basic helath chalenges to maternal and infant health. In parallel 7 years of womens circles dialogues demonstrating cures like Oral Rehydration become the basis of Grameen's 16 Decision culture- -see interview with First Female director of Graeen Bank Mrs Nurahan Begum.  Later James Grant (while head of UNICEF) hears of the Bangla miracle Oral Hydration collaboration- convinces US North East corridor to share this knowhow with all national leaders of developing countries. This is partly why today's flagship public health curriculum at BRAC University takes James's name Both at BRAC and Gramee,n it is trust-flow earned through healthcare networking with village mothers that becomes the passport for being trusted to bank for village mothers livelihoods in the global village race to end poverty of their children, and all millennials. At the community level, sustainble investment banking and hi-trust women empowering basic health services are integrally linked. Any other model of microfinace has nothing to do with the economic miracle that gthe world can joyfully action learn from Bangladesh.

 Oral Rehydration. In humid poor countries, one out of 5 infants die  from extreme diarrhea unless mothers know about oral rehydration- mixing boiled water, sugar and salts in the correct proportion. The mother who applies this cure in time save lives. OR is a life-saving cure with virtually no cost to serve but requiring knowhow networking of 100% of village mothers

7 worldwide wonders of open learning ....

7 nings  ....


One of the biggest findings by investment banks for youth is that policy analyses of healthcare for the elderly and heafthcare for youth involve wholly different impact analyses of compound opportunities and risks. Because youth are not are a voting constituency in democratic government, heathcare policies spin further and further away from youth's health needs even though the future of any nation depends on growing the productivity of youth



Youth investment banking has innovated the the biggest gamechanger in economy of heathltcare - free nursing colleges. Not only do these compound the economic goal of ending nurseless communities but they focus youth passions on how mobile collaboration technology can transform wellbeing and healthcrae costs and they help youth to be at the centre of not just healthcare policy but doing health and celebrating heroines whose service inpacts the laregst number of peoples futures. Extraordinary peer to peer impacts in action learning in schools become possible when young nurses are a community's most linked in networker. Cross-cultural community celebrations also become grounded in the right stuff.

  • Nutrition, paricularly of members children, has been a core focus of Grameen's 16 decision culture from the outset. This guides what investments and innovations members define as critical to sustainably ending village poverty. One of Dr Yunus' first entrepreneurial solutions beyond financial services (1983) was to help cure night blindness of members children - the simple solution was for bank managers to distribute 1 taka packs of carrot seeds so as to improve the childrens vitamin intake. The first global social business partnership with Danone in nutritious yogurt was also targeted at members children's nutrition. On winning the Nobel Prioze in 2006, Yunus announced renewed partnership searches of Grameen Health.

How Can Universities Help Catalyse Unique Global Social Business Partnerships

Grameen Nurse Institute is an inspiring, if brand new example of a Social Business, for the world to map, action and learn around. It probably would never have happened if Dr Yunus hadn’t gone to talk at a University and found that the University and he wanted a lifelong partnership –well 2 actually! The second partnership is Grameen Bank Glasgow which may become one of our favourite cases in next years’ annual if it proves to be the first Grameen Europe bank to become a regional benchmark. (references British Council  : BBC ) For now we will focus on the story of Grameen Nurse Institute. It’s a fantastic example of job creation in a sector with rising global demand, and demonstrates how social business shares out that surplus for all parties integrating around the poorest, and not just for the few who see the most bucks to make.

On driving Dr Yunus to his talk and awards ceremony at Glasgow Caledonian University , compatriot and university lecturer Dr Zasheem Ahmed asked Dr Yunus whether he knew that Glasgow Caledonian was one of the largest trainers of nurses for the UK national health Service. Seeing that Dr Yunus looked interested by the remark he asked why not ask Vice Chancellor to lend you some of Caledonian's trainers in Bangladesh. This has catalysed a chain of partnerships that less than 10 months later were one of the most inspiring announcements of Clinton Global Initiative 2009. In particular. Dr Yunus had hunted out Nike Foundation who have branded their focus around Girl Power with extra support from one of Buffett Family Foundations, Novo. How could they refuse to join in what is probably the truest Girl Power Social Business of them all.

Dr Yunus has long been looking for an opportunity to start up a Free Womens University , a social business model which as far I know began as a unisex one in South Africa at Cida thanks to founder Taddy Blecher, though it too quickly attracted girl power supporters in the likes of Oprah Winfree. She wanted the alumni of her own school for girls to seriously consider graduating at CIDA.  Another early fan of CIDA was the entrepreneur who won 2nd prize in Richard Branson’s tv reality apprentice competition Rebel Billionnaire- her prize being the money to start a girls charity. Those who know of Branson’s own social business Virgin Unite will see it more or less launched itself out of CIDA. The Free University model, broadly speaking, offers to train a graduate in some life critical service or practical entrepreneurial innovation for free. In return, the CIDA graduate commits to spending their next several years serving rural or poorest parts of the country.  

So now the partnership of Glasgow Caledonian as a Yunus Centre- one that is now advertising the world’s first social business chair in health – Nike Foundation and an emerging chain of partners is building Grameen Nurse Institute.

When Dr Yunus won the Nobel Prize he told his friends that health partnerships would be his big new priority. His social business pop group at the time  The Green Children  raised a million dollars which was enough to build 2 replications of the aravind eyecare hospital (started in India – se separate entry). These facilities were opened within a year of starting up. Dr Yunus also has a social business partnership with a hospital construction group that helps!

However perhaps the most deeply practical dynamic to know about the Grameen Nurse Institute Plan is that it intends to send its trained nurses to serve at Grameen members rural health insurance branches, and of course to encourage neighbourhood school girls through peer groups to learn first aid, and perhaps become the next graduates of Grameen Nurse Institute. Grameen’s Health insurance   branch began in 1992 and still focuses on diagnosing illness and recommending where to go or what pills to take for the cheapest cure (that part being a co-pay the patient makes). It seems like a good deal to us as Grameen Kalyan is still quoting Grameen Bank members annual insurances for the family at two dollars in those locations it operates. The main block to this most economical service in the world of health spreading across rural Bangladesh is trained personnel. The several hundred current staff of Grameen Kalyan are probably the most productive medical and economics network you will find anywhere –as always rsvp if you spot a candidate for that social business roll of honor      

Can Grameen Nurse Institute be a benchmark for renewing girl power and community healthcare?

Why not web round Grameen Nurse Institute as most valued girl power social business on the planet. Dr Yunus is busy showing how to connect partnerships of medical technology companies now that most diagnostics and some procedures can be examined remotely through the net –ie the top expert doesn’t have to be in the field to empower fieldworkers as mobile nurses or para medics. These partnerships look set to keep on growing as the head of Grameen America, Vidar Jorgensen, makes his own for profit living with America’s largest heath conferences The time I met Vidar he explained that he had a hobby of searching the world for unexpectedly economical healthcare services in poorest places and had discovered where they appeared they were usually connected with a microcredit. So that’s why he  originally partnered Dr Yunus. This was years before Dr Yunus met up with the social entrepreneurs of Ashoka and Jeff Skoll’s Oxford world championships, and asked them why not become sustainable as social business entrepreneurs. History shows that many communities’ proudest creations were hospitals as social businesses- the 2010s can rediscover the huge vocational values that were once the heart of the medical profession and which heroines like Florence Nightingale empowered the world’s most loving girls to mother.

bhuiyan do you have a map you can share with us today of which practice experts out of georgia and alabama you trust ideas of in helping inspire youth the same way that yunus and the nobel laureates wish; poland nobel summit 2013 number 1 social prize went to a health network to which over 10% of the population participate each year in building one specialty area of childrens medicine t a time - it links in a summer pop concert with a new year funding drive- it makes other pop concerts to end poverty look very unlinked in the national or global psyche for social actions; whats great about this is that te polish people know they can build a health service in a sustainable way top-down politicians never could- every country in europe let alone europes east would benefit from replicating this model -it would also be a natural extension of monica's sing for hope


kathryn is leading student connector of health students interested in health social businesses out of alabama- she's also crazy about regenerating health amongst a community of coffee farmers in haiti; tebabu runs african diaspora value chains summits especially on coffee which make official usaid attempts to map value chains look far from grounded at either end - producers in africa ; diaspora community consumers in eg dc


I think of the world like a correspondence model of an old fashion newspaper


if we do not start to work out a shortlist of practice areas of which health is one and map both some regionally committed people as well as some world all stars then the process around atlanta cant possibly connect positively with jim kim's or any other youth movement

I cant undesstand - we have been talking atlanta for more than  a year now but I dont know where these practice correspondent groups are forming to link together students, mentors, investors, educators, judges


who else could we add to a bottom up health group now- we have thehehad of the world bank a sknowledgeable as anyone on bottom-up value chains of health- he has challenged millennials to post on solutions to an april 2015 spring world bank fair; do we have any of our 10000 atlanta youth likely to pitch in health areas ; if so how do we mentor them so they also pitch to jim kim's #2030now as net generation's defining social valuation movement

48 Grameen Clinics (GCs) have been established across Bangladesh that include a laboratory and pharmacy, and satellite camps along with community health outreach, and emergency services. The GCs are associated with a local Grameen Bank Branch and are led and managed by a licensed physician, who is assisted by one or two paramedics, a laboratory technician and six community health assistants. This network currently operates with 93% cost recovery. The GCs typically serve a population of 50,000 persons living within 8-10 kilometers of the clinic. For more information please visit: link
A vital component of these health programs is the accompanying micro-health insurance scheme to encourage positive health seeking practices. This serves a dual purpose of enhancing utilization of health services and improving cost-recovery to achieve sustainability. An integral part of the Grameen approach is the ?sixteen decisions? which guide all GB borrowers and their families toward productive living. Indeed, more than half of these 16 decisions directly address the health and well being of borrowers and their families. Thus, the basic principles of learning organizations and an overall vision to support the well-being of the poor have been pillars of the Grameen approach.
Opened in 2008, the first Grameen Eye Hospital is modeled after the successful Aravind eye hospitals in India. These targeted to perform 50,000 eye examinations and 10,000 cataract operations per year. The hospital charges its patients based on their ability to pay, with wealthier clients charged at a normal rate and the poor at subsidized. Everyone receives the same high-quality treatment. The key to the success of the model is a system that delivers very high quality and standard eye care services at an affordable cost by using high volume and having highly trained technicians doing most of the examination and preparation work so that ophthalmologists can focus on the operations.

Social Business Joint Ventures

Grameen Danone Foods
The Grameen and Groupe Danone entered into a joint venture agreement effective from March 2006, to form a company called Grameen Danone Foods - a social business enterprise in Bangladesh. Grameen Danone Foods brings daily healthy nutrition to low income nutritionally deprived populations in Bangladesh and alleviates poverty through the implementation of a unique community based business model.

Grameen and Veolia Water agreed in March 2008 to set up a new company called Grameen-Veolia Water Ltd to supply drinking water to the poorest people of Bangladesh. Its mission will be to operate several water treatment and production plants in the poorest villages in Bangladesh. At the end of 2008, the first plant, has begun supplying water suitable for cooking and drinking to 25 000 inhabitants of Goalmari, a village 100 km. from Dhaka. Consumers pay a price that is set on the basis of what they can afford. All the profits will be reinvested in the further development of the project.

BASF Grameen Ltd. will start by utilizing two products from BASF’s portfolio: dietary supplement sachets containing vitamins and micronutrients, and impregnated mosquito nets that offer protection against insect-borne disease. BASF will contribute €200,000 initial investment, funds for one million sachets of vitamins and micronutrients and 100,000 mosquito nets. Grameen’s contribution includes its knowledge of the market, distribution structures and networks in Bangladesh.


Development Programs

Integrated Network of Hospitals, Medical Schools, and Clinics
A new Grameen University and Hospital in Bangladesh will be an important focal point of the project. This hospital and university will be developed into one of the most advanced in the country, treating patients from all strata of society with the best methods possible. Additionally, a strong research and training component will be attached to every aspect of the hospital and university. The university will focus on training doctors, nurses and technicians that will be critical to the growth and effectiveness of the overall network.

The hospital will have branches all over the country, including 30 district Grameen Hospitals; 5 of these will be larger regional Grameen Hospitals located in bigger cities. There will also be up to 3,000 or smaller technician staffed community ambulatory clinics. These clinics will be organized to serve the entire local population in addition to Grameen borrowers. All these centres will have their own research and training components in addition to the quality treatment and primary Healthcare facilities.

Corporare partnership experiments with Grameen Kalyan

In September 2008, Grameen Kalyan collaborated with Pfizer Inc., General Electric (GE) Healthcare, and Mayo Clinic in pursuit of scalable models of healthcare and micro health insurance delivery in Bangladesh. Each of the partner organizations was chosen due to its respective field: Pfizer is a global research-based pharmaceutical company, GE Healthcare is a global manufacturer of medical devices such as ultrasounds, and Mayo Clinic is a large non-profit that operates medical schools, and medical treatment and research centers in the United States. The partners will evaluate ways to improve Grameen Kalyan’s existing system, and in September 2009, will propose business models that aim to scale and replicate the model in other developing nations.

Grameen Kalyan’s new alliance will reportedly focus on the following five areas:

(1) Implementing primary health promotion and disease prevention programs, including maternal and child health promotion and nutrition programs.

(2) Expanding Grameen Kalyan’s current healthcare delivery and HMI programs.

(3) Establishing permanent training programs for nurses, technicians and physicians.

(4) Reviewing operating efficiencies and the types of services offered by Grameen Kalyan’s clinics.

(5) Introducing genomic, epidemiological, and outcomes research capability to increase prevention and treatment of diseases particular to Bangladesh

At little over $2 per year Kalyan's secret as a world's most economical health insurance program is to focus on greatest needs; diagnosing the most common illnesses, recommending cure, and maintaining statistics (mobile tech) that help minimise epidemics etc; it also increasingly offers screening (eg maternal diagnostics) and as part of Grameen's microbank of social business models is a foundation to interface with other most economical solutions and collaboration partnerships of Building Social Business (Muhammad Yunus main focus since 205) . Historically Kalyan's replication has been constrained by lack of rural nurses- that's why the new grameen nursing college (2010) which connects with Grameens secondry school scholars creating jobs for girls is  a win-win-win that keeps on multiplying

GRammen K originates as solution to these 1993 findings

A study undertaken by Dr. David Gibbons and Helen Todd

in 1992 found that after 10 years of Grameen borrowing, 58% of the members had lifted

themselves out of poverty, compared with only 18% of non-borrowers. Of the 42% of

borrowers who failed to improve their socio-economic condition, 60% had experienced a

serious illness within the family that drained family resources.29

    Social Business Case - Aravind -eyecare
    open source property asserted by The Social Business Action Team - Q&A welcomed by team - chris.macrae

    Aravind is one of social business cases I like to refer people to first for the simplicity of its evidence that it has systemised a 10 times more productive design.

    Some economies of social business compound over time – eg the way that the traditiona grameen bank was not just a system deign to create jobs for wome villagers but an investment in the whole next generation’s literacy and health.

    In contrast most of Aravind’s prrof of economy is evident as soon as a branch of the franchise opens. Aravind’s goal is to eradicate needless blindness by designing the most simple and most productively energised eyecare hospital for cateracts. It  origin is a surgeon in India who wanted his lifelong knowledge to be linked together into an open source franchise. The case came to fame from CK Prahalad’s searches at the turn of the millennium for 10 times more economical systems when designed to serve bottom billion markets.

    One of Aravind's chief advisers during the design stage was Larry Brilliant. Eyecare has always been one of his developing world specialties though he is known as the doctor who saw the last smallpox case eradicated. And was the first CEO of

    Basically 10 times more economical is achieved by training staff in exactly what support care is needed. A score of actual surgeons are supported by hundreds of para-nurses but it turns out that their duties of care are not advanced technically. Aravind trains village girls to be para nurses in a few weeks. This achieves a triple win – job creation, a wage that is very good for a village girl but much less costly than a nurse who is professionally qualified in everything that hospital nurses are responsible for outreach to a market of blind people who could not afford hospital price norms paid by healthcare services that start at the top of the market.

    Of course this is a hi-trust healthy franchise where lawyers etc are banned from either side of a contract between patient and hospital. Not that there is any sign that Aravind results are less safe than other eyecare hospitals.

    Another feature is that patients pay what they can afford. Typically the maximum charged is a third what other eyecare hospitals charge but this subsidizes many patients who can’t afford to pay at all to end their blindnness. Across 5 franchises in India, 200,000 operations ending blindness are conducted each year. The franchise has been replicated across nations. Bangladesh’s Grameen has so far built 2 eye care replications – each needing about half a million dollars to build the hospital and start up. The fundraising for these two replications was done by the responsibility pop group

    is the people's healthcare a crisis action issue in your place - tell us if so
    eg chris --

    We've got a fight on our hands. Powerful insurance companies are pulling out all the stops to defeat the President's plan for health reform. They're spending seven million bucks a week on lobbyists, blanketing the country with deceptive TV ads, and just funded two high-profile "reports" to distort what reform would mean for you.

    I know their game. I was in the Senate the last time health reform came around, and I saw the special interests savage our efforts. Frankly, under the old rules of Washington they were nearly impossible to beat. But now, thanks to you, the rules are changing. All the lies, scare tactics and lobbyist shake-downs in the world are no match for the incredible work of Organizing for America supporters like you. That's exactly what frightens them so much -- and it's what Barack and I are counting on.

    After decades of false starts, we're now just a short time from finally passing real reform. Every member of Congress will soon have to cast their vote. As real change draws near, you can bet the insurance companies will hold nothing back. That means OFA will need the extra resources to beat back whatever attack they can dream up next. Here's the bottom line: it's not time to let up -- it's time to double down.

    Please donate $5 or more to power OFA's fight for change as we head into the final round.

    When I talk about you changing the rules in Washington, here's what I mean: This week, crucial negotiations on Capitol Hill are shaping a comprehensive reform proposal. At the same time, the insurance companies' phony reports are grabbing headlines and their lobbyists are twisting arms. But your work is keeping them from setting us back.

    On Tuesday, OFA supporters around the country organized more than 1,000 local outreach events and generated an astounding 330,000 calls to Congress from constituents telling their representatives that "it's time to deliver." From my years in Congress and my conversations with Senate colleagues this week, I can tell you with confidence that your message broke through and you helped keep us on track.

    If this fight were only about guaranteeing the choice of secure, quality, affordable care for every American, it would be worth everything we could throw at it. But as Barack reminded us this week, this fight for change is now about something even bigger: a test of whether or not "we as a nation are capable of tackling our toughest challenges, if we can serve the national interest despite the unrelenting efforts of the special interests; if we can still do big things in America."

    I believe we can. And Barack believes we can. But what really matters is whether you believe we can. If you do, now is the moment to make it happen. Please contribute today:

    Thank you,

    Vice President Joe Biden
