The Arunachal Pradesh government signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (GRH) and Religare Group’s CSR arm, Religare Care Foundation (RCF) in Itanagar on Friday in order to improve healthcare service in the region.

Health & Family Welfare Secretary Liyon Borang, GRH director (medical) Dr Satendra Katoch, and Religare Enterprises Ltd executive chairperson Dr Rashmi Saluja signed the MoU in the presence of Chief Minister Pema Khandu and Health Minister Aalo Libang, reports The Arunachal Times.

Under the MoU, GRH and its partner RCF will offer technical assistance to the state government to strengthen the state’s tertiary healthcare systems and infrastructure.

To begin with, a centre of excellence for renal sciences will be established at the Tomo Riba Institute of Health & Medical Sciences (TRIHMS), the news portal reported.

Khandu expressed his happiness over the development and said MoU is a step forward in providing affordable, accessible and equitable healthcare services to the people of Arunachal.

“It is an endeavour of the government to bring the best of the tertiary healthcare services near to home, thereby reducing the cost and also the psychological trauma the family has to go through for seeking such medical cares," Khandu was quoted as saying by the news portal.

"By joining hands with Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and Religare group, we look forward for bringing about changes that positively impact the lives of the people and also the entire healthcare landscape of the state,” he said.
