Shah, who is from Gujarat, as are most members of AAPI, said Global Healthcare Summit 2014 which will be held in Ahmedabad from January 3-5 next year and is aimed at advancing the accessibility, affordability and quality of world-class healthcare to the Indian people. Among other areas, the Summit will focus on prevention, diagnosis, treatment options and share ways to truly improve healthcare transcending global boundaries, he said.

Nothing that healthcare in India is one of the largest sectors in terms of revenue and employment, Shah said, “AAPI has been engaged in harnessing the power of Indian Diasporas to bring the most innovative, efficient, cost effective healthcare solutions to India.” So far AAPI has organized seven Indo-US Global Healthcare Summits and has developed strategic alliances with various organizations.
