A Note of thanks to Dr. Nupur Kohli from United Nations Foundation,The organizers of London Youth Conference for her speech

Nupur Kohli visited several reputed hospitals in Delhi and Mumbai.  Being part of the teams as an observer gave her the opportunity to look closely at the functioning of various departments namely Cardiology, Minimal Access Surgery, Urology and Gynaecology in highly regarded Indian hospitals.

She is working to share her knowledge and experience in Europe with the Indian counterparts to contribute to make the medical care in India more efficient. She believe that although world class doctors are available in India there can be improvements in practical approach especially when it comes to medics at next lower level and further down. Small improvements there can make the medical care and  healthcare system better with better treatment of patients and in critical cases can also save more lives.
