Dear Readers, Being a physician, the formal launch of Ayushman Bharat by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sept. 23, was a natural choice for me to lead our latest issue of U.S.-India Global Review, and in fact devote the entire issue to health. The healthcare plan that aims to cover half a bil- lion people and portends to be the largest health insurance program in the world, will be an example both in its implementation and in the outcomes, and we discuss the various elements that go into it in our lead article. Healthcare is a global challenge and can be met most effectively with global, multilateral, and bilateral cooperation. More than any other area of human endeavor, healthcare is where countries can share their strengths to overcome their weaknesses, appar- ent to me because of my involvement as a practition- er as well as an advocate, Some of the highlights in this issue include a look at the strides India has made in healthcare, through the expertise of Neeraj Jain of the leading non-gov- ernmental health organization, PATH, which gave us permission to print his assessment; Dr. Aseem Shukla of the University of Pennsylvania, who gra- ciously wrote an exclusive piece for us about a suc- cessful model of healthcare cooperation between the United States and India, which I believe, could be a harbinger for things to come; Some success stories from Bengal on social factors that impact health, because we at the Review believe in reinforcing the positive. There are also a few brief articles on this time of flux in U.S. healthcare and how to navigate those changes; And finally, the role that Artificial Intelligence has to play and could play in the health sector, ending with Silicon Valley thought leader Vivek Wadhwa's words to India's youthful tech world to chart its own path.
