Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital

Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital is one of the premier health care institutions in Mauritius providing quality healthcare and medical facilities to the public. A request for assistance in the setting up of a hospital was conveyed to the Government of India during the visit of the then Prime Minister of Mauritius Sir Anerood Jugnauth to India in February 1983. The matter was considered in the Second Session of the Indo-Mauritius Joint Commission Meeting in February 1984 held in Port Louis and it was decided that the Government of India would meet the construction cost of the hospital and provide equipments for use in the Hospital. The Hospital was financed through a grant of Indian Rs. 31.6 million.

The foundation stone of the Hospital was laid in October 1984 by Shri Giani Zail Singh, the then President of India. The first phase of the project began in 1985 and the Hospital was inaugurated on November 14, 1990, on the 101st birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister in whose memory the hospital is named.
