INDIA’S HIGH RATED HOSPITAL YASHODA SETS PERMANENT FOOT IN ZAMBIA FOLLOWING A SUCCESSFUL FACT FINDING MISSION

 

One of India's highly rated YASHODA Hospital has accepted to expeditiously set a permanent foot in Zambia.

 

The hospital says it is fully satisfied that the Country remains the best investment destination in Central and Southern Africa.

 

The move is expected to significantly cut on costs and time incurred by people who travel to India for specialized medical attention.

 

YASHODA Hospitals International Services General Manager RAKESH JALLA says Zambia's leadership at the highest level is serious in improving the quality of health care of the people.

 

"I say this because it was easy to meet the Minister of Health, Secretary to the Cabinet, Permanent Secretaries and the other lead technocrats during the fact finding mission," he said.

 

MR. JALLA says Zambia is truly centrally located geographically with a strong legal framework that protects property as opposed to some regions.

 

He says YASHODA will now register the company in Zambia soon to allow diagnostics to be carried out in the Country so that only critical conditions are referred to India for specialized medical attention.

 

MR. JALLA says the Ministry of Health will avail to YASHODA a list of patients suffering from cardiac conditions adding that the institution can utilise the local cath laboratory at the University Teaching Hospital- UTH.

 

He says specialised doctors from India will have to be travelling periodically after screenings to attend to the patients within Zambia.

 

And Zambia's High Commissioner to India JUDITH KAPIJIMPANGA says over one hundred people from Zambia travel to India for specialized treatment within a quarter of the year.

 

She says YASHODA will retrain some Zambian doctors and nurses on their specialised services to prepare them for future eventualities.

 

"The Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, is excited over the development as this will lead to skills and technology transfer," MRS KAPIJIMPANGA said.

 

She says a diagnostic centre will be established within six months for people suffering from congenital heart conditions.

 

The Zambian top envoy in India says she is excited that the investor has rubbished negative assertions on rogue media about Zambia after visiting the Country.

 

“This was a ‘Go and See, Come and Tell’ successful mission,” she said.

 

This is contained in a statement made available by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, Bangwe Naviley.
