Treat victims of road accidents within minutes of a collision by creating India’s first community-driven emergency response system.
India suffers the highest number of road accident deaths in the world. In countless cases victims perish because emergency care fails to reach them. SaveLIFE Foundation (SLF) is a non-profit organization established to fill this severe gap in India’s medical services by enabling community-driven emergency medical responses for road accident victims. SLF trains community volunteers and Police officers to become medical first-responders; connects them through its technology platform; and mobilizes them within seconds of a distress call, ensuring timely care starting by the roadside and continuing during transportation to hospital.
Piyush Tewari is the Founder and CEO of SaveLIFE Foundation, a non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to improving road safety and emergency medical care across India. He is currently championing the development of a strong national road safety law for India while also expanding SaveLIFE's award-winning model of emergency care, which trains, connects and mobilizes citizen volunteers and police officers to the aid of injured victims well before formal care is available. Piyush is an Ashoka Fellow, an Echoing Green Fellow, a Rolex Laureate and has recently been conferred the prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award. Prior to taking up Road Safety full-time, Piyush was a Managing Director at a US-based Private Equity Fund.
