MUMBAI: The American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) have announced a partnership with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to end tuberculosis (TB) in India.
The AAPI signed a Memorandum of Understanding in this regard with USAID in New Delhi a few days ago, its functionaries said in a press conference here.
“The program will engage AAPI’s network of private charitable clinics for awareness, detection and treatment of TB. It will explore opportunities for collaboration between US and Indian medical schools to exchange cutting-edge healthcare solutions,” said Dr Naresh Parikh, president of AAPI.
“Elimination of tuberculosis has been a matter of national concern for many years now. Through our partnership with USAID, we aim to bring American technical expertise to help strengthen India’s fight against TB,” he added.
Xerses Sidhwa, Director of Health, USAID-India, said, “We have been supporting the TB program of the Government of India for two decades now. With our collaboration with AAPI, we continue our assistance to the government to plan and implement evidence-based interventions to reach a TB-Free India.”
The AAPI said that it would organize a Global Healthcare Summit along with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in Mumbai between December 28-30 this year. PTI

It’s a lovely book. It feels energetically clear and light. It’s easy to read, dip in and out and most importantly it offers information without fluff! Blessings on this project.
