During the inauguration ceremony, Minister Iruthisham noted the assistance provided by India to develop and improve Maldivian health sector, and expressed gratitude for the assistance.

Mishra noted the achievements made by Indian health sector and the fact that thousands of doctors are trained by the country each year.

He said that it was a pleasure to share the knowledge and expertise of Indian doctors with the rest of the world.

Mishra said that health sector was one area that every country continuously worked on improving, and that no country could provide perfect health services.

He said that countries needed to assist one another to provide quality health services to its citizens.

The book, India-Maldives: Partners for a Healthier Future, was unveiled during the ceremony by Minister Iruthisham.
