I was invited by FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry) and Government of India, to become panelist and speaker at “India Pharma 2020“ summit in Gandhinagar, Gujarat for an extremely important topic for cancer patients i.e. “Ecosystem for R&D, Innovation & Start-Up in India”
It was an important and unique opportunity as:
– Patients in India has no voice and at such platforms with key stakeholders, patients & their voice are nowhere.
– Esteemed fellow panelist from Government (including India and US (Dr Patrick Kilbride, Sr VP, US chamber of commerce)), senior leaders of Industry (including from Pfizer, Novartis, Cadila etc.) & Academic Researchers (including Director NIPER).
Therefore, I tried my best and ensured to share #Patients Voice to:
> make better eco-system & access to #Research in India.
> make patients as #partner with Govt, Industry, Academics & Clinicians in the system.
Hope they heard patients’ point, loud and clear…and we will see more research in India…Finger crossed!!
