A 11-year-old boy from Kolkata has created an app that can significantly improve healthcare for the underprivileged by helping them access expensive medicines easily.

Across India, many underprivileged people don’t have access to medicines which often leads to even common illnesses sometimes posing severe life risk.

Sometimes, there’s also shortage of medicines in the government hospitals due to which even patients who are covered under government’s healthcare scheme and cannot afford medicines have to purchase them from private shops.

To tackle this, Yuvraj Shah has created the Medmaze App, which helps people to donate their unused but not expired medicine to government hospitals, according to reports.

He was even selected by EdTech startup White Hat Jr, as one of 12 students who would get to go to Silicon Valley to meet Google scientists, Waymo engineers and noted venture capitalists.
