Transformative healthcare required a judicious combination of science, technology and entrepreneurship, Prof Robyn Norton, principal director of the George Institute for Global Health, said at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here on Saturday.


Addressing students and faculty members after signing an MoU with PGIMER here to strengthen research in the field of education and research, Prof Robyn said the greatest challenge of the century was to reduce premature deaths and disability and this could happen if they were able to promote and sustain innovation in all fronts.

The MoU, which was signed between Dr Yogesh Chawla, director, PGIMER, and Robyn Norton, will ensure that innovative approaches to transformative healthcare that George Institute for Global Health is trying to further through its offices in Oxford and Sydney is also furthered through research here.

Prof Vivekanand Jha, executive director of the George Institute for Global Health India, was also present on the occasion.
