Infinite Vision: How Aravind Became the World's Greatest Business Case for Compassion

The Aravind Eye Care System (http://www.aravind.org/) delivers world-class medical services to over 2.7 million patients each year, treating a majority of them for free, while remaining financially fully self-reliant. Its complication rate is more than 50% lower than that of the U.K., and its services are delivered at less than 1% of the UK’s costs, for comparable volumes. Beyond its own direct care, in its mission to rid the world of needless blindness (treatable blinding conditions), it strives to enable thousands of doctors, organizations and hospitals worldwide to learn from and replicate its success.
