While in Davos for the World Economic Forum, social entrepreneur Ashwin Naik tells DW about his initiative to make sure everyone in India can access healthcare.
The Indian premier has hailed the scheme, saying "it will become an example" for the world. But others are critical, warning that similar initiatives had been bogged down by lack of infrastructure and state corruption.
Angela Merkel has told WEF delegates at Davos that her government would get right-wing populism "under control, but it is a poison." The chancellor insisted that protectionism would not answer the world's problems.
