"It is our global mission to revolutionise and synchronise global healthcare access, particularly for the 4.5 billion (450 crore) people in Asia, Africa, Middle East, Caribbean, Latin and South America and Eastern Europe," Economic Technologies chairman and CEO Jude E Uba said.
The company would initially set up 635 centres in 23 countries, including India, Brazil, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa at an investment of $2.2 billion.
Claiming that this initiative would make Fulana healthcare facility available within 40 miles from any strategic point in the world, Uba said a patient could have access to any of these centres with a single 'smartcard'.
To support the healthcare venture, the US-based company has also partnered with university medical centres in 40 countries and companies like GE and Motorola for the 'world's largest library of medicines'.
The company also plans to acquire medium-sized, high-end medical groups in the UK and the US, which would "serve as added-value lead telemedicine and integrated operations centres worldwide," the company statement said.
