New Delhi: The government is mulling promoting public-private partnership colleges to promote medical education in the country, Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said.

"India, being home to a large population, has a great responsibility to provide adequate health care facilities to all those living in the country," he told a function at a private hospital here.

He said the government was implementing various programmes at the national level in the areas of health and family welfare, prevention and control of major communicable and non-communicable diseases and promotion of traditional and indigenous systems of medicine.

"We are open to the idea of promoting Public Private Partnership (PPP) for setting up medical colleges in certain areas of India," he added.
