“For over 40 years, HHS has supported U.S.-India health collaboration through our attaché assigned to the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi.  Today, we have a team of more than 30 U.S. and local health professionals who work with our Indian colleagues on issues ranging from food safety to AIDS outreach and prevention to joint biomedical research on cancer.
