Speaking at the Pharma Med HD conference organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI) Mandaviya said, “The government is putting together an accessible and affordable healthcare ecosystem for the citizens of the country. Government is coming up with certain initiatives like pharma research policy to uplift industry-academia linkages to magnify research in this area which will bring immediate solutions to the problems.”
Further Union Health Minister informed that the government has taken some significant steps to bring in ease in doing business.
“More than 25000 compliance has been reduced so that industry can thrive and do business easily because our main focus is to shift from volume to value. Also stakeholder consultation is one of our top priorities to move forward in this direction because we do not only see health as commerce but also as service to mankind,” he added.
Participating in the event, Dr Ram Sewak Sharma, CEO, National Health Authority (NHA) spoke about some of the most important uses and benefits of schemes and applications developed for an affordable health care system.
