Center to Strengthen Medical Education in India by Starting AIIMS in all States

Union Health and Family Welfare Minister J P Nadda assured that All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS)-like institutions would be set up in every State in India.

Nadda, who was at the Government Medical College, Thiruvananthapuram, on April 10 to lay the foundation stone for various projects, said, "The Center is committed to start AIIMS in all the states. Kerala is one of the states where we are going to start it."

The Center plans to strengthen medical education in the country by upgrading 300 medical institutions. A total of 100 institutions would be upgraded as medical colleges, which will add 10,000 new doctors every year.

Nadda said, "The northern and eastern parts of the country still have inadequate facilities compared to southern and western parts." The government is making efforts to resolve regional imbalances in medical education facilities in the country.

The major challenges facing the health care sector are lack of manpower as well as monitoring of quality medical education.

Nadda said the Kerala government has submitted four places to the Center for the planned AIIMS in the state. A central team would visit these places and take a final decision.
