About the theme:

Responsible Use of Medicines – From Theory to Practice:

Responsible use of medicines means ensuring medicines aren’t overused, underused or misused. It complements the concept of Rational Use of Medicines and adds consumers, the policy makers and regulators  besides the prescribers as vital partners in appropriate and efficient use of medicines.It implies that the activities, capabilities and existing resources of health system are aligned to ensure that patients receive and use the medicines in the right manner, notwithstanding the finite resources. The scientific program of this conference revolves around this theme and includes the Prof. B.N. Ghosh Oration, symposia, guest lectures, free and prize sessions for paper and poster presentations.
