This congress is gratitude to India's invaluable contribution to global healthcare in the form of highly talented doctors who form a valuable resource. Apart from the COVID-19 pandemic, India and the world at large are facing an epidemic of non-communicable diseases - NCDs like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. We seek the involvement of everyone to overcome this biggest challenge to mankind posed by COVID-19 and NCDs".
