New Delhi: After resounding success in its inaugural year, Zee News, in association with LIC, is all set to once again felicitate outstanding achievers from the field of health and medicine with the Swastha Bharat Samman 2011.

Going by the tradition set last year, a jury of eminent personalities has been formed to identify and felicitate the achievers - in various disciplines – who would be conferred the prestigious honour.

Gaps still exist in our healthcare delivery system despite the Central government hiking the health budget by 20 percent hike in 2011.

Swastha Bharat Samman forwards the cause of making affordable healthcare accessible to the masses and thus is an acknowledgement of the efforts of health professionals committed to the endeavour.
