Blantyre City Council mayor Noel Chalamanda says Malawi will benefit from the services the Indian doctors would provide.
He said this when the Indian doctors held a seminar in Blantyre last Thursday to share recent advances in cardiac surgery.
“I can say without fear of contradiction that a number of Malawians are still alive, thanks to the advanced medical technologies in your country.
“However, that has come at a cost. And this cost has been a huge burden on people seeking medical treatment in India. In fact, others are helplessly failing to access such treatment just because they cannot raise enough money,” said Chalamanda.
He said the Indian doctors’ coming to Malawi to share the latest developments demonstrated their commitment to humanity.
The medical doctors also delivered informative sessions on oncology and orthopedic which was organised by Lifecare, a global health management organisation in conjunction with Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani, a hospital and medical research institute, both from India.
The visiting doctors included Nandkishore Kapadia, Navnath Raut and Messrs Viresh Batavia and Himanshu Khajuria.
A similar seminar was conducted in Lilongwe.
