The global challenge

The possibility to provide people with effective, high-quality health care is a major challenge in most countries. The combination of increasing populations and longer life expectancies increases the pressure on health care systems.

Getinge is committed to finding solutions to these challenges and thereby enhancing the quality of life for people. We do this by providing our customers with the necessary knowledge, technology and resources to gain optimal clinical outcomes and, ultimately, to save lives.

Getinge has renewed our three-year engagement in Pratham, the first major organization to achieve lasting, wide-scale success in India's educational landscape. The cooperation with Pratham is based on our strong belief that education is a powerful way out of poverty. Getinge contributes through the initiative ‘Swedish Industry for Quality Education in India’, which focuses on helping children in the Assam region learn to read and count.

Getinge and WaterAid


Access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene are some of the most basic and crucial requirements for hospitals to provide sustainable health care and lower the risks of spreading bacteria and viruses. It might sound like a given but in fact one out of four health care facilities globally[1] lack access to clean water. As a result, hundreds of millions of people each year are affected by health care acquired infections.[2] That is why Getinge and WaterAid has partnered up to strengthen access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene at health care facilities around the world.
