Founder Speaks-

"As the world's second-most-populous country and one of its fastest-growing economies, we face challenges in healthcare, which can only be resolved by empowering the healthcare professionals.

The Government is further planning to increase public health spending to 2.5% of the country's GDP by 2025."
