 Indo-Swedish Health Week Begins
Meant to commemorate the first anniversary of the signing of the MoU between the two countries, the Indo-Swedish health week has kicked off.

The two countries have their traditional strengths, which they would like to share.

India would like to offer its expertise in traditional medicines like yoga and ayurveda as well as good quality and cheap generic drugs; while Sweden would like to offer its expertise in the field of diagnostics and medical education.
