Dr. Ramesh Kancharla, Chairman and Managing Director, Rainbow Children’s Hospital said, “We are delighted to enter into this cooperation with the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania. The partnership will benefit both nations greatly because it will not only allow us to treat Tanzanian children at Rainbow Children’s Hospital in India, but also to support vital training and development initiatives for the medical community”
