Deepti Gaur Mukerjee Takes the Helm as CEO of National Health Authority

The National Health Authority (NHA) has officially appointed Deepti Gaur Mukerjee as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The announcement was made on Wednesday, marking the beginning of a new era for the apex body responsible for overseeing the implementation of the government’s flagship health initiatives.

Deepti Gaur Mukerjee, a 1993 batch Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer from the Madhya Pradesh cadre, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to her new role. The NHA took to social media, particularly Twitter, to share the news with the public. The official NHA Twitter account posted, “We are delighted to extend the warmest welcome to Smt. Deepti Gaur Mukerjee, IAS as CEO, [MP:93], NHA,” NHA tweeted.”

Mukerjee takes over the reins from Dr. Ram Sewak Sharma, who stepped down earlier this year after completing his tenure on January 31, 2023. Dr. Sharma had been appointed as the CEO of the NHA in February 2021. During his tenure, the NHA played a crucial role in implementing key healthcare initiatives, including the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Yojana (AB PM-JAY), a flagship health insurance scheme, and the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM), aimed at integrating digital health infrastructure across India.

The appointment of Deepti Gaur Mukerjee is expected to bring fresh perspectives and strategic leadership to the NHA as it continues its mission to enhance healthcare accessibility and affordability for all citizens. As the nation grapples with ongoing healthcare challenges, Mukerjee’s role becomes pivotal in steering the NHA towards achieving its objectives and contributing to the overall improvement of India’s healthcare landscape. The healthcare community and the public eagerly await the impact of Mukerjee’s leadership on the nation’s health policies and initiatives.
