Welcome to Koita Centre for Digital Health (KCDH)

The Koita Centre for Digital Health (KCDH) set up at IIT Bombay, is the first of its kind in India, focused on driving academic programs, research, and industry collaborations in Digital Health.

Improving the quality, accessibility, and affordability of healthcare is one of the world’s biggest priorities. Digital Health has a profound impact on the quality of care and efficiency of healthcare delivery. Consequently, there is substantial focus globally on enhancing Digital Health and Informatics. In India too, the launch of the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) in 2020 is driving Digital Health adoption at a national scale.


Message from Director, IIT B

The centre will enable an ecosystem that can help address the healthcare challenges that have been so glaringly exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Digital Health and Informatics need cross-functional expertise. At KCDH, we hope to enable seamless cross-functionality across these streams. This new initiative opens up exciting opportunities for our graduates, including spearheading research, launching startups, and much more.
