There is a need to ensure that every Indian citizen gets access to affordable healthcare irrespective of his or her standing in the society. We will also be executing initiatives to promote Swachh Bharat & Ayushman Bharat at the PHM this year. This year, the Mela promises to be bigger, better, and more exciting for everyone as we have introduced many new features.”

“Infertility is a major health concern among Indian men and women alike today,” said Dr Kaberi Banerjee, Medical Director, Advanced Fertility and Gynecology Centre. “Sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy eating, and delayed pregnancy further exacerbate this situation.
