United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Global Health Affairs (OGHA) today awarded a grant of 50,000 dollar to Nashik-based Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) to provide funding for meetings and technical workshops for expanding and strengthening medical education in India. U S Consul General, Mumbai, Paul Folmsbee and Maharashtra University of Health Sciences Registrar Dr Sunil H. Phugare along with Vice Chancellor of MUHS Dr Mridula Phadke and Dr Payal Bhansal from the Department of Medical and technical education signed the grant document, awarding funds to MUHS. The grant will strengthen cooperation in the health sciences and medical education and the U S-India collaboration in life sciences, health sciences, public health, and medical education. Over the past few decades, the U S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office in India has administered well over 200 million dollar for cooperative health projects in high-priority areas, such as HIV/AIDS, polio, tuberculosis, malaria, leprosy and oral cancer. Last year, HHS committed nearly 30 million dollar to U S-India collaborations through many of its agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The collaboration is aimed at developing new scientific knowledge, creating new technology for the development of vaccines, drugs, diagnostic tools and devices and working together to control, prevent, and eliminate diseases.
