BANGALORE: In five years, every man and woman in the country will be in a position to access hi-tech healthcare with dignity, said Narayana Hrudayalaya Chairman and Managing Director Devi Prasad Shetty, accepting the Life Time Achievement-Management Excellence Award conferred on him by the Bangalore Management Association here on Thursday.

He said the mass healthcare programmes will reach the areas where access to medical care has been impossible all this while. He said India produces 18,000 doctors every year and the largest number of nurses and medical technicians trained in the world are from India.

Governor T.N. Chaturvedi presented the award to Dr. Shetty for his contribution to health care, his innovations to reach health care to the poor and those in the rural pockets with the Yeshaswini Insurance scheme.
