Health experts are of great importance especially because of the recent infections like covid-19. Recently Lieutenant Governor J&K, Shri Manoj Sinha addressed the 27th Annual Conference of Indian Society of Nephrology.

He commended the Indian Society of Nephrology for offering a common platform to the experts to enable more people-centric, safe and effective treatment, and strengthening the future exploration on recent advances.

Jammu & Kashmir has now moved forward to the category of Front-runners in NITI Aayog’s SDG index; neonatal mortality rate in the UT reached single digit, Universal Health Coverage has been extended across the UT. We have not only checked the alarming decline in health infrastructure and funding in up-gradation, but also steadily increased it in the last couple of years.

He advised the Nephrologists, dialysis experts and transplant physicians to seek innovative ways, research and development to provide affordable and inclusive solutions.

In order to develop future technologies such as artificial kidneys and ensure a flexible care model, we have to nurture nephrology segments, attract and retain brightest experts in the field and promote organ donation and safe transplantation campaigns within the country.

He called for reversing the trend of migration of our youth to other countries for medical education by encouraging private players and other stakeholders to provide affordable education, while state governments should play the role of a facilitator.
