During President Donald Trump's first visit to India, New Delhi and Washington signed two bilateral pacts for strengthening cooperation in the mental and emotional wellbeing and generic medicine regimes.
Said Dr Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group, “The pact for collaboration in the mental and emotional wellbeing space recognises the growing burden of mental health disorders and together, research from the US and India’s wealth of knowledge on healing and wellness through traditional techniques such as yoga will help deepen our understanding and find lasting solutions to this issue. The pact on generic medicines will help increase accessibility and affordability to much-needed medicines with the assurance of world-class quality. We look forward to these pacts being the beginning of a comprehensive partnership to take healthcare to new heights.”
