WASHINGTON:  A leading body of Indian-American physicians plans to hold its 9th annual Global Healthcare Summit aimed at bringing accessible, affordable and quality world-class healthcare to India in Mumbai from Jan 2-4.

The Association of American Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI), one of the largest ethnic professional bodies, is organising the summit at Trident Oberoi Hotel in collaboration with the Indian Ministries of Health and Family Welfare and Overseas Indian Affairs.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA), Global Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (GAPIO), Indian Surgical Association and several other national and international organisations are also collaborating in the venture, according to an AAPI media release.

The summit, which is expected to have participation from some of the world’s most well-known physicians and industry leaders, will focus on prevention, diagnosis, treatment options and share ways to truly improve healthcare transcending global boundaries.

“As part of the CEO Forum in Mumbai, CEOs from around the world from hospitals, teaching institutions and major healthcare sectors, including pharmaceutical, medical devices and technology, will join to explore potential opportunities for collaboration,” Dr. Naresh Parikh, treasurer of AAPI said.
