The Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance (IPA) that represents researched based national pharmaceutical companies recently launched its website: www.ipa-india.org.
As Mr. D G Shah, Secretary General, IPA states “The website provides plenty of information and data on diverse subjects. Be it pricing, patents, drug regulatory regime or role and contribution of the national pharmaceutical industry to the economy. It shares IPA presentations at various fora and position papers on many subjects. Its rich content will help you to source various information related to the Indian pharmaceutical industry. You can watch videos and read articles on key issues and refer to recent important news items relating to pharmaceutical industry.”
The website, a laudable initiative, is neatly categorized, simple and uncluttered. It has various sections including information on the activities of the IPA (an IP Cell; a campaign against spurious drugs and a quality forum). It also has a section dedicated to position papers, articles, sponsored studies, presentations and videos. Since the website contains such information, a search option, though currently missing, would be a beneficial tool.
