Improving health in India
New publication shows how the school is working in partnership to address critical health challenges old and new.
India has emerged as a global economic power, but millions still suffer from curable infectious diseases and malnutrition, and the increasingly urban population faces an emerging epidemic of non-communicable diseases.
