The theme would allow the Congress to focus on challenges faced by the Indian Pharma Industry in continuous production of quality pharmaceuticals in compliance with the global regulatory requirements and the role of a pharmacy professional in that process. The theme would also address the role of pharmacists in the continued evaluation of these pharmaceuticals during their clinical use in assuring safety to the patients through pharmacovigilance & outcome evaluation studies and finally, how the pharmacists could transform India from the position of a global pharmacy to an enviable position of the global wellness provider. As pharmacists, we have the responsibility to focus on patient's welfare while producing quality pharmaceuticals.
