The two seminars drew participation from a total of 277 healthcare students and workers.

The mission also witnessed a donation of 1,000,000 pieces of Standard Malaysian Glove (SMG) examination gloves from MREPC to two charitable hospitals, namely Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Bengaluru and Villo Poonawalla Memorial Hospital, Pune.
