    Hats off to Ms Katherine Pettus of IAHPC and Pallium India for sharing this noble mission to upscale universal health coverage which is a prime need of late in the developing countries like India where a major section of the society is deprived of proper medical facilities and health coverage is beyond reach of the patients coming of poor pecuniary conditions. I am pleased , India is one among 66 countries to co-operate in making policy for the sake of patients to bring them under universal health coverage. Hope for the best.
