  Letter from the Editor-in-Chief  
  Dear Subscriber,  
  The Covid-19 pandemic exposed the limitations of modern healthcare systems around the world. Capacityof hospitals were stretched thin and health workers were pushed to the limits. It showed that despite all the progress that medical science has made, it’s still not prepared to deal with pandemic-like situations. One of the key learnings from the pandemic is that healthcare capacity needs to expend drastically. Moreso, in a country like India, where the ratio of doctors per million people is abysmally low.  
  For building healthcare capacity in India, expanding the base of medical education is imperative. The decision of the government to increase the number of AIIMS across the country is a step in this direction. The recent inauguration of AIIMS-Deogarh made it the 16th such medical institute in the country. Overall, 22 AIIMS will be developed by 2026.  
  The establishment of AIIMS-Deogarh will bring world-class healthcare to one of the poorest regions in the country. The expansion of top-class health care facilities across the country is being carried out under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY), whichwas launched by the Atal Bihari Vaypayee government in 2003 and was carried forward by the Manmohan Singh-led UPA-1 & 2 governments. The current government led by Narendra Modi further expanded the scheme with the aim of providing top-notch healthcare to the traditionally neglected parts of the country.  
  In this fortnight’s newsletter we bring you a detailed report about the impact of AIIMS-Deogarh in the region and present a progress report of expanding AIIMS over the years besides providing a wrap of some of the most important stories over the past 15 days. We also revisit some of the important stories from the past that are still relevant.
