Randeep, IAS, Commissionerate of Health and Family Welfare Services and Director-CEO of C-CAMP, Dr Taslimarif Saiyed was formally announced in the presence of Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Govt of Karnataka, Dinesh Gundu Rao.

Dinesh Gundu Rao said, “Improved diagnostics and screening at the last-mile will be key for prevention of disease and early detection. We are prioritising these two areas as a means to boost health outcomes, especially in aspirational districts, while also nurturing high-quality home grown technologies. This MoU will be an immediate step in this direction.”
