Message from Dr. Ravi Jahagirdar

The concept of a global match-making India centric portal was to provide a one stop location to any physician in the world seeking information about India - its organizations, hospitals, and medical regulatory agencies, both Governmental and the private sector, to perform pro bono work, or attend professional events. After considerable thought, and with the enthusiastic support of the Hon’ble Health Minister then, Shri Harsh Vardhan, and the current Hon’ble Health Minister Shri Jagat Nadda, the concept is now a reality as “SwaasthIndia.gov.in”. We thank all the pioneers in AAPI, GAPIO, BAPIO and Apollo hospital for persevering in this concept.

The website registration is simple and is monitored by a professional team of IT experts in India. From the Government side, there is an Officer to provide details, and in the private sector, there will be an agency that will glean information from the hospitals across the country. The goal is to help provide universal high quality healthcare at an affordable cost to the citizens of India. I urge all physicians in the USA and over the globe to register and be part of this exciting coordinated approach that is such a positive step towards this declared commitment.

Message from Dr Prathap C Reddy

This day will prove to be momentous in the annals of global healthcare history as it will witness the fruition of a path-breaking idea – “Swaasth India.” A commendable initiative, it was conceived over two years ago with the purpose of enabling physicians of Indian origin residing overseas, to support Government of India's objectives in improving the standard of living and health status of the Indian population in a coordinated way. We are proud that Dr Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Minister for Health is personally launching the portal. “Swaasth India” will truly harness the power of collaborative effort, as it will endeavour to be an enabling platform for the Government of India and State Governments to post their requirements for medical services, and simultaneously offer the medical fraternity of Indian origin located across the world, an opportunity to offer their services during their sabbatical to indigent and needy patients back home. I express my felicitations and appreciation to all the teams involved in the ideation and development of this portal and thank the Hon’ble Health Minister and members of AAPI, GAPIO and BAPIO for their efforts in making high quality healthcare accessible to every individual in need.
