Medindia was conceived originally with the social mission of educating consumers about health and providing physicians and professionals with the tools to leverage technology and the internet to improve healthcare. In order to further this mission, Medindia.net was launched as a website in 2001, and incorporated as a business in 2004, and has grown steadily ever since its inception.

In addition to the founders, Medindia is supported by a team of a highly qualified and experienced team of doctors, healthcare professionals, content researchers, writers, editors, designers, developers and analysts.
