AID & Public Health

Healthy living conditions and access to good quality health care for all citizens are not only basic human rights, but also essential components of equitable social and economic development. India presents a paradox of persistently poor health indicators for a large proportion of the population, in the presence of world-class hospitals catering to a rapidly growing medical tourism industry.
