Healthcare Skill Council and NABH signs agreement for skill development in the sector

Healthcare Sector Skill Council (HSSC) and National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) today signed an agreement to implement skill development programmes in the sector. According to the agreement, NABH and HSSC will work towards creating a dedicated and professionally competent set of health professionals.

The implementation of skill development programmes will be done through training, assessment and certification on HSSC developed qualification packs(QP) set against national occupational standards. “In the backdrop of transformations taking place in the health sector, India is firmly poised to be a human resource hub for healthcare professionals across the world,” said Naresh Trehan, Chairman, HSSC.

To tap this emerging opportunity, it is critical to build a highly skilled and professionally competent set of professionals. The HSSC-NABH initiative is a step in this direction, he added. Both HSSC and NABH would also work towards capacity building and conduct train-the-trainers programmes jointly across the country.
