New Delhi, June 11 (AHN) India’s healthcare sector is globally known for its excellence, affordability, and advanced infrastructure, said Jagat Prakash Nadda, who on Tuesday took charge as the new Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare.
The minister, in a post on the social media platform X, said that the health sector was the “backbone of the country” and the ministry “plays a crucial role in the nation's progress and the well-being of its people”.
In addition to promoting “public health”, the health sector “also stands as a strong force in addressing and overcoming health challenges,” said Union Minister Nadda.
“At present, India's healthcare system is recognised globally for its excellence, boasting affordable and advanced infrastructure,” he said.
The Union Minister noted that this had helped position the country “as a prominent destination for medical tourism worldwide”.
