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.
