Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad called for more participation from the private sector in health ministry's project of building hospitals and medical colleges on land owned by the railways. "Over 400 sites (owned by railway ministry) have been identified and handed over to the health ministry. We will work with state governments, and other ministries. But government resources will not be enough and even after taking all, we need help from you (private sector)," Azad said. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the railway and health ministries in February this year to develop health care facilities like diagnostic centres, out-patient centres, in-patient medical treatment facilities, super-speciality hospitals, medical colleges and nursing schools.
