India Pharmacists Convention 2014

On behalf of the UDF & Doctor of Pharmacy Association we welcome all the delegates to the 'India Pharmacists Convention 2014.. The theme of the convention is 'Pharmacist involvement in Country's Health Policy.

The biggest question that we pharmacists have failed to understand the Total black-out of pharmacist's professional service"from the nation's Health Policy document.

Hence, the theme:
"Pharmacist involvement in Country's Health Policy.
The theme has been selected after a very elaborate systematic deliberation with various stakeholders in and out of the profession from all nook and corner of the country. The theme is a well considered one…taking into consideration the prevailing status of the Pharmacy profession in India.

We Pharmacists of our country have already taken initiative "India Pharmacists Revolution Yatra" (Kashmir to Kannyakumari), from Jan-2013 to Dec-2013, we visited each state, across 75 thousand kilometers,met each state Policy Maker, Focused various issues in Media & Met around 5Lakhs 80 thousand Pharmacists, according to our survey Pharmacy Profession not up-to the mark in our country.

The UDF hopes that the theme would ignite the thought process among the participants on the need to consolidate the strength and opportunities available on the one hand and inherent weakness and threats to be addressed.

Our Vision

'Right drug from Right source to the Right person at the Right time with the Right information' - as these 'Rights' are the fundamental
