“Facilities that had rarely been found within India until a few decades ago are now available in the country at the divisional level and are of the highest quality,” this was highlighted by the Vice President of India, Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar during his address at the 2nd International Symposium on Health Technology Assessment (ISHTA), 2023. Describing technology as a game changer for good health and happiness, Shri Dhankhar noted that India has set an example in the world where technology is being used to provide efficient services to the people.
Underlining India’s successful handling of the COVID pandemic, Vice President Dhankhar drew attention to India’s Vaccine Maitri initiative. This, he said, is in spirit of India’s age-old ethos of ‘Vasudaiva Kutumbukam’, which sees the world as a family. He urged all stakeholders and global leaders to come together with the same belief and conviction to help secure a world order of health and happiness.
ISHTA-2023 was organised by the Department of Health Research, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in collaboration with World Health Organisation (WHO) and Centre for Global Development. The symposium also hosted a Market Place that showcased the prominent HTA recommendations that have been implemented by the State and the Central Government.
