Mumbai, Maharashtra, India:Pharmaleaders’s 5th Annual Pharmaceutical Leadership Summit & Business Leadership Awards 2012 held at Hotel Hilton Mumbai International Airport, Mumbai, India Brand India : Beyond Generics, Growth, Challenges & Developments in Mumbai on Friday, the 21st September 2012 at Hotel Hilton Mumbai International Airport witnessed more than 250 Business Tycoons, Owners of Pharma Companies, Government Officials, Doctors, Overseas Companies,Policy Makers & Bureaucrats. In a historic address Satya Brahma, Chairman & Editor-In-Chief of Pharmaleaders Magazine addressing in his opening address lambasted the Government of lack of political will to bring a consensus on the issue of “Free Medicines” as the Central Government has put in place a $5.4 billion policy to provide free medicine to its people, a decision that could change the lives of hundreds of millions. From city hospitals to tiny rural clinics, India's public doctors will soon be able to prescribe free generic drugs to all comers, vastly expanding access to medicine in a country where public spending on health was just $4.50 per person last year. “While welcoming the decision of such move, there are apprehensions that the decision could in fact divide the opinions of the MNC’s & Domestic Pharma Majors as Medical Doctors who have been practicing with their respective practices of established pharmaceutical Companies with the research molecules & have spent years to ensure the efficacy of drugs & undergoing Clinical Trials with the approved laboratories, It indeed will be disastrous considering the process & mechanism of its implementations & Patient Safety will be a biggest Challenge”.
