Philanthropy to be a cornerstone of entrepreneurship in future: Anil Agarwal
The Executive Chairman of Vedanta Resources Limited believes that the profits of business must help society where it matters most and there is nothing more important than securing a healthy future for our women and children.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought out the importance of public health in no uncertain terms. A robust public health system is key to both lives and livelihoods, and not just in the context of mitigating the impact of the pandemic. India has a number of other public health challenges, none perhaps more alarming than malnutrition. As per the Global Hunger Index (2019), India ranked 102 out of the 117 countries which qualified for assessment. One third of our children under the age of 5 are stunted, a key indicator of malnutrition.
