Founded in 2010 by Dr Sunil Saini and two other colleagues, Indian Association of Health, Research and Welfare (IAHRW) is dedicated to addressing the needs of students, researchers for quality research, health professionals for promotion of mental health,and social scientists working for the welfare of the society.
