‘The Elders’, a group of internationally acclaimed statesmen founded by the Late Nelson Mandela, has welcomed the Aam Aadmi Party government’s decision to increase the number of Mohalla Clinics. The organisation tweeted their endorsement earlier this week:

The Elders had previously complimented the Delhi government for its pathbreaking initiatives in expanding Delhi’s Universal Healthcare (UHC) infrastructure through the setting up of Mohalla Clinics. Former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan had said in his letter to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal:

We are aware that your administration has implemented a series of health reforms consistent with the UHC goal. In particular, you have scaled up the provision of universal free health services, most notably in providing free primary healthcare services through your new Mohalla Clinics. We understand that this initiative is proving very successful and we commend you on this impressive achievement
