Taking forward what started as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity, Cisco will soon launch its services of providing education and healthcare in rural areas using technology as an enabler to connect experts from cities to the beneficiaries in villages.

Cisco will launch the service as part of its ‘inclusive growth' initiatives a few months down the line, following the success of its pilot projects of providing these services under their Rs 47 crore CSR scheme Project Samudaya.

Cisco, which has provided healthcare solutions to 630 patients since October 2010 using telemedicine, plans to expand providing the services in two other districts in Karnataka, Mr. Arvind Sitaraman, President, Inclusive Growth, Cisco Systems said on Thursday.
