Over the years, Dr. Reddy has been able to attract the best medical talent to India including doctors from hospitals in the US and UK. He has also been instrumental in bringing several regulatory changes that relate to licensing, ceasing of import restrictions, permission for organ transplants, etc. Dr. Reddy’s pioneering approach and tireless efforts have contributed significantly to the emergence of the private healthcare sector in India.
