India Firing Some Foreign-Funded Consultants From Government Health Programs In Effort To Reduce NGO Influence

Reuters: India sacks some foreign-funded consultants; health programs may suffer
“India is firing dozens of foreign-funded health experts working inside the government, seen as part of a broader clampdown to reduce the influence of non-government organizations (NGOs) on policy. The loss of these professionals, most of whom are Indian nationals, has raised concerns that signature programs to combat HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis may suffer just as they face funding shortages due to slow bureaucracy…” (Kalra/Busvine, 4/4).
