He said, India stands ready to support its fellow countries in the march to achieving their development goals through skill building and training programmes, providing affordable medicines and vaccines, knowledge transfers and exchange programs. 

Mr Modi stressed on partnerships between citizens, partnerships between communities and partnerships between countries. He said, goals can be achieved through partnership.

Inaugurating the fourth Partners’ Forum in New Delhi today, Mr Modi said, a lot of interventions required, from bigger budgets to better outcomes and from mindset change to monitoring. 

The Prime Minister said, health of mothers will determine the health of the children and health of children will determine the health of tomorrow.

 He said, with sustained momentum, and a faster rate of decline during the last few years, India is on course to attend the SDG targets for maternal and child health, much ahead of the agreed date of 2030.

The Prime Minister added that the government is committed to increasing India’s health spending to 2.5 per cent of GDP by 2025, reaching more than 100 billion dollars.

Mr. Modi also said, the government will continue to work for the betterment of people and women. He said, children and youth will remain at the heart of its every policy and programme.
