ADB OKs loan package of US$500m to improve tertiary healthcare in Indian state

Maharashtra, India's medical education will also have access to the loan.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a loan package of US$500m to enhance access to quality and affordable tertiary health care and medical education in Maharashtra, India. 

“ADB has been working with the state government of Maharashtra to achieve its vision of providing affordable and accessible tertiary health care to all by 2030 and strengthen a cadre of quality and professional medical practitioners,” said ADB Health Specialist Nishant Jain.

“This program introduces key policy reforms to strengthen the state’s tertiary health care and medical education. It will also expand medical education and health facilities to provide modern medical services in underserved areas in the state," Jain also said.

The Maharashtra Tertiary Care and Medical Education Sector Development Program will establish four medical colleges attached to tertiary care teaching hospitals which will incorporate climate- and disaster-resilient, gender-responsive, and socially inclusive features in underserved districts.

It will also increase bed capacity in government tertiary care hospitals and hire at least 500 new doctors for four new governmental medical colleges.
