Convergence is a key driver for India to achieve its Strategic Development Goals. The Government of Maharashtra has been one of the most proactive Governments to have envisioned its holistic development, through Public Private Partnerships (PPP). This innovative PPP model of collaboration will certainly accelerate and enable the cause for preventive health services across the state of Maharashtra.
