President Ram Nath Kovind interacts with parents of infants in Philippines

The President expressed happiness about India’s engagement with the key Southeast Asian country that has brought people’s causes within its expanding ambit.

In the last 28 months, 35 babies from the Philippines have undergone successful liver transplant in India as a part of the Philippines-India Pediatric Liver Transplant Program.

The President said that the Indian medical institutions were working with their counterparts in the Philippines to see how the success rate could be improved while bringing down the costs of similar transplants in the Philippines.

President Kovind arrived in Manila on Thursday as part of his five-day state visit to the Philippines and Japan.
