Wishing all our readers a very Happy Holi. May the spirit of this festival leave you drenched with joy and may your life be coloured with hues of happiness!
Heartiest Congratulations to India’s new Drug Controller General, Dr. S Eswara Reddy and sincere thanks to our outgoing DCGI, Dr. G.N Singh for an effective and applaudable innings when in office. PSM India wishes Dr.Reddy all the best in his tenure and extends support at all times.
I take this opportunity in inviting all our readers to our 15th March event on World Consumer Rights Day. Every patient is a consumer and every consumer has been a patient some point of time in life. Let’s come together to stand strong as aware patients and consumers and help create a nation where every consumer is respected, irrespective of religion or financial status; where affordable healthcare becomes the right of every citizen; where there is access to safe and quality medicines always and where patients strongly voice themselves on issues such as private hospitals making profits of up to 1,737% on drugs, consumables and diagnostics, accounting for about 46% of a patient’s bill. Read details on this in our PSM India Capsules.
