Nadda for research to strengthen healthcare sector

Nadda, who was the keynote speaker at the H3C Health Sciences Innovation Conference here, commended the collaboration between the Ohio State University and AIIMS, New Delhi, in the field of regenerative medicine. He informed that the country’s first Regenerative Medicine Centre at AIIMS has been launched in partnership with the Centre for Regenerative Medicine and Cell Based Therapies at the Ohio State University.

Hoping that such ventures will give fillip to health-based research in the country, Nadda said that such research must be people-centric and benefit humanity. He beckoned the students, fellows and faculty from the Ohio State University to collaborate with Indian universities and health institutions to undertake research in varied health issues.

“India with its huge population, the burden of communicable as well as non-communicable diseases, coupled with shortage of human resources in the health sector including doctors, specialists and paramedical staff still faces several challenges,” he said.

Nadda further said that he looks forward to partnership with the Ohio State University and other such academic bodies to work together to address these challenges. He assured political commitment towards all health issues in the country.
