Building of capacities at various levels is an ongoing activity of Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region, including the North Eastern Council. Given the high incidence of cancer in some States in the North East, a meeting of State Health Secretaries/Commissioners with other stakeholders was recently held wherein it was inter alia agreed to sponsor doctors/para-medicals for specialized long and short term courses/training to equip them to address this challenge suitably.
